Here’s some photos that Mike and Sandy took in April 2008 on a short driving vacation up to the Black Hills area in South Dakota.  Thay had a GREAT time!  They saw so much and stopped everywhere!!  Fort Robinson, Wind Cave, mammoth fossil digs, Mount Rushmore, a fish hatchery in Spearfish (the biggest trout I’ve ever seen!!), Wall Drug, Chimney Rock, Fort Laramie, everything!! Sandy especially loved the Devils Tower area – really beautiful scenery.

There’s one in the Badlands where the deer are all bedded down – but you can see their ears sticking up very prominently!!  It makes a great desktop picture on the computer.  And – that’s Rent-A-Mike next to Wild Bill Hickock and Calamity Jane’s graves in Deadwood.

New photos from Susan Paul. On July 9th she summited Gannett Peak. At 13,804’ it's the highest point in Wyoming. It was Susan's 5th “State High Point” and entailed a 50-mile backpacking trip, carrying a 55-pound pack, and crossing two glaciers to get to the top of the peak. She completed it with fellow Colorado Springs highpointer, Doug Hatfield, in eight days.
