Recently, we had the opportunity to hike Bear Butte. At 1251 feet, Bear Butte is the third most prominent summit in Western South Dakota. On clear days, you can see up to four states away from the peak! You can also see some of the other Black Hills landmarks, like Terry Peak, Crow Peak and Custer Peak.
Spring has finally sprung in the beautiful Black Hills and we can’t wait to get outside for activity and recreation! Custer State Park is always a great place to spend time during the spring but after the recent Legion Lake fire, many wonder how that will impact our community’s ability to enjoy CSP.
For the next few months we’re going to talk about some of the hidden gems of the Black Hills and how to best enjoy them. This month we’re talking about Rochford and Mystic! They’re little villas in the heart of the Hills but they’re packed with beautiful scenery and great history. It’s also a great place to get outdoors for some exercise, even in the winter months.
For the “Rally Season” blog, it’s all about pampering and rewarding ourselves by taking some down time. Stay home, prepare our own meals, listen to our body and check out of the rat race for a week. There’s no better time to do that, even if you can’t afford to get away this year. Make this an annual holiday for your mind/body/spirit!
