Wordless Wednesday: Black Hills in Autumn #5



Cement Ridge is a place in the Black Hills that I have only been to a few times. It requires a bit of a drive on gravel roads, and then on very rocky dirt roads, to reach the summit. And it's actually over the border into Wyoming. I had a fun adventure getting to and from there with my uncle, aunt, cousin, and her wee ones this October. The minivan wasn't quite the best vehicle for the very rocky, rutted road we choose to come down on. We made another wrong turn at the bottom and I saw even more of the Hills that I rarely get to see! It was quite a beautiful, silly afternoon.

Goodmorning to you...what lovely photos. I dreamt about the country last night. We read a chapter with the girls of "Little House on the Prairie" ...the one where they find a place where all you can see is nature surrounding!
