Wait. Let's be fair. I always take a lot of pictures. However, on this day, I took 591 photos. This is a lot for even me.
Digital is my friend.
We picked this day to go westward bound and knew we had a lot of ground to cover. Along our route, we went through the world famous Sturgis, SD. Home of the annual bike fest and all around orneriness.
You know what, I think I've already seen enough. lol.
We also passed through Spearfish, which my mom always said how much she LOVED. Sadly it was a Sunday, so pretty much everything was closed. I didn't even take a photo. Sorry Spearfish. I'm sure you are a lovely town.
It took us a bit, but after being distracted by cute (closed) shops, we finally found the Spearfish Canyon Scenic Byway, and added a couple hours onto our trip, but it was worth it.
Just down the road, there's some more falls, actually, quite close to where Dances With Wolves was shot.
At the base of the falls is a small dam, which makes a small "lake" area. Back here at home we call them ponds.
It kinda looks like a happy face.
Off we went again, and we ate our lunch in the shadow of this rocky ridge:
Sorry Tanner. Sandwiches are your life.
forever and ever amen.
someone wouldn't get out of my shot, so some random person's head is in my picture. Forever and ever amen.
More pics from that afternoon, hopefully THIS afternoon. I still feel like cold clammy ass today, and I'm planning a trip to the chiro. My neck hurts and when it hurts, all of me feels like crap. blah.
