Last week the Timehop app on my phone kept showing me photos from 2 years ago when we took, what would be our last trip, to South Dakota. We were going to go again this summer but our reasons for going came home. It is beautiful country out there and I will admit that I am a little sad I didn’t get to see it one last time. I’ll never forget the time I spent in the Black Hills. Going to Bear Country, and seeing buffalo in Custer State Park, and a prairie dog town in Badlands National Park. I can say I have had free ice water at Wall Drugs been to the Corn Palace, and Storybook Island. I can say I have seen Mount Rushmore and a pig race at Old McDonald’s Farm. I have watched as lighting has lite up the night sky and rode a train from Keystone to Hill City and back winding through the lush green country side. I have taken a ride across the badlands felt that freedom on my face and breathed in all that open space. I never imagined I would enjoy the Black Hills of South Dakota as much as I did. Maybe some day I will get to go back and take all that beauty in one more time.
