I went to Deadwood, South Dakota, for a guys trip to meet up with some old high school friends.  A few of us took one day to hike to the State highpoint.  The trail was a bit sloppy in places, but the weather was perfect with plenty of clouds to shade us from the sun throughout the day.  There was a fair amount of traffic on the trail and the summit at the old lookout tower that still remains.


We saw a mountain goat on the hike.
