On Saturday, my family and I had a blast heading over to the Black Hills and going on a 10K Volksmarch hike up to the top of Crazy Horse Monument! My parents started off earlier with our children so my husband and I had a chance to run part of the trail as we caught up to my parents.
Gabe and Nyah were troopers and did an amazing job of keeping up with all of the adults on the hike, and they even found some beautiful wildflowers. Here are some photos of our hike!
Our favorite hiking essentials:
- Camelbak hydration pack (I’m not sure that the one I use is for sale anymore, mine is a small one that works perfect for short hikes and bike rides)
- Takeya water bottle
- SPI belt
- Natural bug repellent

Very cool! We are planning a trip to South Dakota this summer and can’t wait to check out the monument!
It’s pretty cool there! They are making progress, slowly but surely. I am not sure when they will completely done with the monument, but it is neat to see it in progress!
I love this Sarah! Super great trip and photos, what a blast!
Thank you, Lynda! I think you would love it here 🙂
