Black Hills Vacation!

Not too long ago our family headed out to the Black Hills for an amazingly fun vacation! On the way there we stopped at our cousins' place and then continued on to the Black Hills! The picture above was what a lot of the scenery was like on that trip across South Dakota!

We stayed at this fun little cabin with a loft on top.

This bedroom was upstairs as well!

On the way to the black hills we saw a TON of signs for a place called Wall Drug. We decided to stop in and had a lot of fun looking at all the stuff that was there.

Matt, being Matt!

The first night we were there, we decided to go see Mount Rushmore. This mountain goat was there to greet us!
There was a wonderful view!
Walking up
And the famous, Mount Rushmore!

Liz and the guys
There is a path that you can walk up and see Mount Rushmore closer up and here JoAnna is waiting for the rest of the family to catch up!
It was a really fun path!
Here is one more picture of the incredible view!
The next day we decided to hike up Black Elk Peak, the highest peak in South Dakota. This picture is taken not long after we started the hike.
The view is getting better.
This picture is perfect. Just the look on Esther's face as she budges right into the photo!
Dad and Mom. Almost at the top!

And we made it to the top!
Caleb, on top!
