I mentioned in my last post that I spent a little time in the U.S. last month visiting family. After road tripping it with my brother Barry to Denver where we picked up his girlfriend Rachel, we continued on to my uncle’s house in South Dakota. I hadn’t seen Lynn in 25 years, so it was a great chance to catch up. Luckily, Lynn lives near South Dakota’s best region (in my opinion), the Black Hills.
Here’s a photo tour to give you an idea of how beautiful this area can be.
The area is full of rock formations and granite mountains giving it a very rugged aura.
Those granite peaks are perfect for carving enormous monuments like Mount Rushmore…
….and the still incomplete Crazy Horse.
There are gorgeous lakes like Lake Sylvan.
And sprawling grasslands where wildlife thrive.
At the end of the day it’s tough to beat a scene like this.
