I recently went out to the Black Hills region of South Dakota. The express purpose of this trip was to visit my amazing boyfriend, but also to see somewhere I've never seen.
it. was. incredible!!!
the hiking, the views, the sights, the rock outcrops...
We backpacked quite a bit, which really made me realize how out of shape I was. I don't know if it was me being out of shape or the fact that I'm not used to being a mile above sea level, but I had to stop every 100 or so feet when going uphill. Downhill was hard, because it aggravated my knees (I should have guessed that I'd have knee problems just like my sister: monkey see, monkey do)
I loved it.
I didn't want to come home...
if you ever get the chance to go there, DO IT.
just remember to bring a lot of water on your hikes!
