I went to Deadwood, South Dakota, for a guys trip to meet up with some old high school friends.  John and Lee joined me this particular morning to go for a hike up to the State highpoint of South Dakota.  If I remember correctly, a squall came through while we were on the summit and we had to wait it out for about 40 minutes before it passed and made hiking more tolerable.
