As promised, I am continuing from my last blog post which regale’s the time we spent in South Dakota this past May.
Our trip through the Black Hills of South Dakota was extremely memorable. On my husband’s birthday, we climbed to the top of the highest peaks in the hills known has Harney Peak.
Harney’s Peak entails 7 miles round-trip of gorgeous trails with stunning vistas and furry creatures of all sorts. The peak stands at 7,242 in elevation with a structure built at the top of the summit where you can witness the glory of the hills for miles on end.
During the first half of our trip the weather was quite cool and rainy. There was even point in time during our hike we experienced raw nature as it hailed on us! There is nothing like bolting down a trail through rain and hail – let me tell you!
Another part of our trip included winding roads through the hills and forests where you can see many unique rock formations and man-made ones like Mount Rushmore. One of our most treasured National monuments is certainly something to behold as the sun rises over the hills in the morning; simply breath-taking!
Unfortunately,our trip wasn’t all fun and games though.
As the days began to heat up, a most un-welcomed surprise waited for us back at the cabin – bees! We swatted and ran around our cabin like crazy people. The bees apparently just loved us city-folk, they just wouldn’t leave us alone. Our cabin neighbors must have laughed at our silliness as we ran in and out of our cabin waving our hands above our heads. What a sight we must have made!
We eventually managed to get things under control where we could somewhat relax through the evening. To calm down from the bee invasion, I managed to create another Zentangle tile. Upon reflection, I think the bees had an influence on what tangles I chose for my drawing that day. There definitely seems to be a buzz-like theme to my tile – what do you think?
Well, this concludes part 2 of my South Dakota Trip. Stay tuned once again tomorrow as I unveil the last leg of our trip.
Until next post…
Tangles Used: Crescent Moon Variation, Yincut, Knightsbridge, Beeline, Florz, and Rain.
Thanks for sharing. Glad I didn’t have to contend with the bees. If you thought the two of you were acting silly, you can just imagine what I would have done. Grenades maybe? lol
