Trail #9  Sucess!

A popular road to travel and for good reason. The view of the Black Hills from the top will stay in your memory forever.

Nice trail  Sucess!

This is a great trail, nice and well worn and smooth. Very comfy, and the views are worth the effort to the top!

A little snowy  Sucess!

Made our way through a little late season snow to the very windy, fog enshrouded summit. Brutal conditions on top, but the clouds did open up for a few views before we came down.

Fun hike  Sucess!

Well marked easy hike to the peak. Rain had been falling for DAYS but this morning and afternoon the weather was perfect.
Lots of folks enjoying the trail.

Awesome Hike, Awesome Views!!!  Sucess!

Shortly after visiting Mount Rushmore in the morning, my wife and I hiked up to South Dakota's highest point. We had beautiful (perfect, in my opinion) weather conditions and met a lot of great hikers (from all over the country) to talk with along the way, including many fellow hockey fans. I had photos taken at the tower (South Dakota's manmade highpoint) and at the true geographical highpoint. Good times. The views from the summit are spectacular. Highly recommended summit hike.

Route to my 5th highpoint  Sucess!

I was surprised that, even in the cold and snow of late October, there were quite a few people on the trail. This is one of my favorite hikes ever.
