Summertime means lots of outdoor time for folks around the Black Hills. We spend many long winter months in cold and snow so when summer arrives, we want to spend as much time as possible in the sun. There’s nothing better on a hot day than splashing in the cool waters of Lake Pactola or Angostura, or skipping along by Rapid Creek. People who live in the Black Hills are also known for being very active, particularly during our sunny season and that includes our love for watersports. Everybody’s looking for a way to cool down during the hottest days of summer and luckily, we have plenty of lakes, streams and waterways to beat the heat.
Lyme Disease is one of the hardest-to-cure diseases that affects humans, and often mimics some of the scariest diseases: PTSD, Chronic Fatigue, Alzheimer’s, Lou Gehrig’s Disease and Multiple Sclerosis. It can be very difficult to get a diagnosis of Lyme Disease and often, doctors will have to circle around several times, appreciating your symptoms, before they can conclusively determine whether you have Lyme Disease.
