A few weeks ago we headed west for the day.... can you guess where it was?
I am more than a little obsessed with sun flares. And, these reflection shots of me. It's the closest I'll get to a selfie.
The powers that be want to rename the place we visited.
Recently, in the Black Hills, there was a renaming of a popular hiking destination. You might of heard of it in the news... Harney Peak to Black Elk Peak. There are a few reasons I am against actions like these. First, it's a frivolous waste of money. If our state agrees to the name change, then everything would have to be altered: signs, maps, online social media, and tourist brochures, to name a few. Second, this name changed could lead to several name changes in our state, which leads to even more spending of money. Third and most importantly, we have a history in our country. Our history includes the good, the bad, and the down right ugly. To sweep the ugly under the carpet does absolutely no good for the generations that are up coming. If we forget where we have been, we are bound to repeat our mistakes.
I'll give you a few hints about where we went, but you'll have to come back next week to see if you are right. Until then, leave a comment on where you think we went.
1. It is a National Park Monument in the U.S.
2. It was the shooting location for a popular 70's movie.
3. It's a popular destination for mountain climbers.
4. It's more than four football fields in height, yet the base is only one mile in circumference.
5. It's in another state, but is still located in The Black Hills.
SO, WHAT IS YOUR GUESS??? WHERE DID WE GO?
