Hiking for the big "win" in SD.

Harney peak is the highest point between the Colorado Rockies and the Swiss Alps. We are a wee bit competitive, so of course this meant Becky and I had to go hike to the top and back....faster than anyone else out there.

The trail head is here.

Yeah, it is a cool lake.

Overtaking some pathetically slow chumps. We passed a lot of people up and down. It was less exciting when they were 60 years old or had small children, but it was still demonstrating our dominance on the mountain none the less.

At the top. It was a long away down.

The trail head sign says allow 4-5 hours. Team Tri did it in 2 1/2 hours. I am in awe of our ability to kick ass on all that is everything! By the way, that is Becky's hand, I use a light blue nail polish.

A drive on Needles highway led us into prairie dog territory. These guys planted themselves at stop signs begging for scraps. What a bunch of fat little beggars.

Some parts on the highway were a tight fit. That big thing could barely fit in (that's what she said).

Well that is all for now. Tonight I will try to to get the first edition of PRO or LOCAL SCHMO started. Stay tuned.
Now it is work time for me, how about you?
