Salutations from scenic South Dakota.
What have I done since Saturday, you ask? Well...
...I took a 22-mile bike ride on some not-so-easy trail. Note to self: 3% grade is still hard
...I checked out the buffalo on the range and fed carrots to some wild donkeys
...I hiked up the mountain that my "in-laws" live on and took some great pictures
...I had lunch in Rapid City and went shopping at Target
...I hiked up that mountain again.
I'm staying somewhere between Rapid City and Hill City. It's very peaceful and beautiful but a bit in the middle of nowhere. We leave on Thursday and head for civilization (aka Santa Barbara). I was asked if I could ever live in South Dakota, specifically build a house on my "in-laws" 3.5 acres behind their lot. Can't say I can. I need more metropolitan right now. Later.
