There’s no place like home – The Beautiful Black Hills of SD

I thank you God for this most amazing day, for the leaping greenly spirits of trees, and for the blue dream of sky and for everything which is natural, which is infinite, which is yes.

~e.e. cummings

Mid pleasures and palaces though we may roam,
Be it ever so humble, there’s no place like home;
A charm from the sky seems to hallow us there,
Which, seek through the world, is ne’er met with elsewhere.
Home, home, sweet, sweet home!
There’s no place like home, oh, there’s no place like home!

~ John Howard Payne

Today I was fortunate to be able to spend some time in the beautiful Black Hills while participating in the very first Fall Volksmarch at Crazy Horse Memorial in Custer, SD.   I feel very fortunate that such gorgeous views are only a short drive away for me!

  1. Beautiful photos and post. You quoted my favorite poet E.E. Cummings. It is still hot and humid in Dallas so these photos you posted are very refreshing to view. Thank you for looking at my blog. Linda

      Thank you, Linda 🙂 I always enjoyed E.E. Cummings and thought that quote went very well with the photos. We had a few hot days here too at the beginning of the week, but no humidity. Sounds like we could possibly have snow in the higher elevations on Friday 😉 Not sure I’m ready for that yet! Thanks for visiting and for the nice comment!!

    It does look like beautiful countryside. There used to be a song in the 1950s, I forget who sung it, but it went ‘The Black Hills of Dakota, My Beautiful Indian Country’. Can’t remember any more words I’m afraid.

What do you think? Thanks for visiting! Have a positive, productive day!
