Ascent Trip ReportLeft the trailhead just after dawn with my usual hiking partner, Hannah, my daughter. Arrived at the summit a few hours later gloriously alone to enjoy the experience with just the two of us. Wonderful weather. Spectacular views of the Badlands and surrounding Black Hills. I now see why the American Indians see this place as sacred.
