South Dakota Vacation: Black Elk Peak
|I took this shot about halfway up the mountain. You can see the highest point, the Fire Tower, just to the right of the middle |
|The beginning of Trail #9 at Sylvan Lake, our starting point.|
|My kids survey the rising landscape about halfway up the mountain.|
|My Dad posing along a rock face.|
|If you don't sign in at the kiosk, you risk a $100 fine.|
Once you get to a certain point, you are required to sign in your party. I imagine this is in case anything should happen to you on the rest of the journey as it's not an easy hike after this.
|A plaque on the Fire Tower gives you some information about the mountain.|
