Harney Peak, South Dakota Panorama

By , August 20, 2011 at 9:48 pm

This is the tallest peak in South Dakota, elevation 7,244 ft, and about a 3.5 mile trek with over 1,000 ft ascent from Sylvan Lake where we were camping.  It took about 4 hours for Mikey and I to summit to the top, and boy was I proud of my little guy — the only 5 year old we saw all morning even attempting it!  Carolyn, Douglas, and David made it about half way before turning back, but Carolyn got to hike it by herself on the third day we were there while the boys and I attempted to go geocaching with no reception and a dead GPS battery (epic fail but nothing that a little ice cream couldn’t mend).  Anyways, breathtaking panorama and what a view!
