Thunder Butte (Lakota: Wakíŋyaŋ Pahá) is a prominent butte landmark located in the northwest corner of Ziebach County, South Dakota, in the United States. Thunder Butte is a landform that can be seen for many miles in every direction, and serves now (as it has in the past) as an important orientation point for area residents, or a navigational aide for travelers crossing the surrounding plains.
Famous quotes containing the word thunder:
“There is not even silence in the mountains
But dry sterile thunder without rain
There is not even solitude in the mountains”
—T.S. (Thomas Stearns)
