One afternoon some of the boys hiked up Harney Peak (the highest natural point in South Dakota). I asked one of them about it afterwards. "Did you go all the way up to the top?"
To which he answered, "Yeah, we went PAST it. We didn't know where the top was so we just kept going." That must have been some hike.
I was with a group of younger boys who didn't think they could manage the hike to the top. We hiked around Sylvan Lake (the site of much goings on in the movie National Treasure: Book of Secrets). It was here that my boys caught trout with their bare hands. True story. As we were walking along the lake shore, a couple of guys from the DNR pulled up with a big tanker truck full of fish to restock the lake. They pumped over 1,500 trout into the water. Some of them didn't immediately get into the water, so my boys asked if they could help. We grabbed the fish and tossed them into the the lake.
