South Dakota

Wednesday, July 18, 2007

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...
loved it!!!

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!

    I am sooo jealous! I have never been in the western part of the US. I can imagine how beautiful it must be! Do you travel a lot? I also noticed that you are part of a knitting group. That happens to be one of my favorite past times (which I am getting plenty of practice in!)
