Badlands, South Dakota

I didn't plan on it, but I ended up storm chasing in the Badlands of South Dakota this day. I knew there wouldn't be any tornadoes there but I was pleasantly surprised by the number of hail producing storms. This storm, along with many other storms, produced pea sized hail. This picture was taken just outside of the park boundary. I drove on a dirt road for a bit to get closer to the storm until I couldn't easily drive towards it anymore.
