If you are an American, today is our birthday. America is 234 years old today, and even though we most certainly have our share of problems, and some of them seem to get worse every year, we’re still very privileged to be citizens of the greatest nation ever known. My hat is off and I salute those that have made this possible and today we HONOR then all.
Meanwhile, we continue to enjoy our "little piece of Heaven" here in the Black Hills of South Dakota. It is even more enjoyable with our "kids" Rollie and Gina here with us.
Gina is always "ALL SMILES" and a bundle of energy. This little gal enjoys life and puts joy into everyone's life around her!!
Above is Ms Pat and Gina relaxing and enjoying one of our favorite rock lookouts high above Stockade lake looking back towards our place near Custer.
The first half of this hike has some long steep inclines, but as you can see Gina is still smiling!
Here is Gina coming down from the toughest part of our hike hooping and hollering because she MADE IT!!
After Rollie and Gina arrived Tuesday at 9:30am , shortly after lunch we took them on a short ride to our personal cache site that we placed at an old mine. It was only a little over 3 miles round trip and they were anxious to get out a little further into the National Forest right across the road from our place.
So, yesterday afternoon we took them way out on a trip to Hazelrodt Picnic area and on up to Cicero Peak. We traveled over 23 miles, saw some beautiful country and ended up at Broken Arrow Campground. We wanted to visit with Larry and Geri, the owners, but Larry was home sick with a flu bug. We visited with Geri for a few minutes and then on home just in time (of course) for HAPPY HOUR!!!
This morning we are heading for Church and this evening we are looking forward to sitting in our front yard and watching the outstanding Custer Fireworks display. That is, if I can stay awake long enough!!
