Murdo Girl…Loving South Dakota

I’m sitting here in my recliner writing this blog and feeling so blessed.

We spent the day walking the trails and enjoying the splendor of Spearfish Canyon. The sky was clear and the temperature was a perfect 75 degrees.

The puppy dogs are tired out from all the walking and I have a piece of coconut cream pie waiting for me in the refrigerator. This is the life.

These dogs must be tired. Kip and I are actually sitting in the recliners and the dogs are on the floor.



We saw the Bridal Veil falls, the Roughlock falls, and the awesome Spearfish falls.


The information board along the trail said the South Dakota state flower is the pasque. It’s supposedly the first to bloom in the spring.

I always thought the SD state flower was the bluebell.

On the way back, we wondered if the kitty would be frantic because we left her alone for so long.

Guess not…

    Nice pictures. I hope Kip enjoys Mount Rushmore. That’s a special place.

    We used to camp at Timon (?) campground when we were kids and hike up to “hole in the rock”. Are you anywhere around there?

      I don’t know where hole in the rock is. I’ll google it. Thanks Rachel!

    An Absolutely perfect day in the Hills. You sure are lucky duckies and deserve the perfect scenery, weather and good old South Dakota sunny summer days. The photos are magnificent! Kip is in for some grand experiences, too.
