This morning I woke up much earlier than I normally do on Saturday. No sleeping in when you have a mountain to climb! Well, maybe not quite a mountain, but a very significant hill out here in the beautiful Black Hills. 😄
It is the weekend of the Crazy Horse Volksmarch. In a path that differs from year to year, we made our way to the top where we got an up close look at Crazy Horse Monument. It is always a good time and a challenge, especially this year with temps near 90!
I was joined by two of my three kiddos and my good friend Candace. We all did our share of puffing, panting and sweating, but the view from the top and the feeling of accomplishment was well worth it!
After the hike, we all enjoyed a delicious meal at the Alpine Inn in Hill City and afterwards I found some new treasures for my yard at the most adorable shop, The Farmer’s Daughter.
When I got home, a shower was much needed. I decided to open the Ocean shower gel from Bath & Body Works. I had been saving it to give away since it is from their “Men’s Collection”. I love the scent and have one of the auto air fresheners which makes me inhale deeply whenever I get into my car. Today I decided that I don’t have to wait to have a “special someone” to enjoy it. I can savor the scent on my own self 😄
