Seeing is believing. Capturing views across the plains and over the hills, there’s no shortage of iconic Rapid City images. The history of this place fills canvases and screens. From roaming buffalo to expansive landscapes, Rapid City is the very picture of the pioneer spirit, moving people to carve monumental visions into hillsides. The Black Hills stretch on, pulling you with them into the distant wilderness. Dusty purple sunsets meet unforgiving hillsides, home to epic encounters.
