Spearfish Canyon reminded me a lot of upstate New York. The pictures do not do it justice at all, but here they are anyway. Lots of waterfalls, small hikes and caves. This was on our way to Deadwood just after Sturgis.
We traveled the 19 miles of the Spearfish Canyon Scenic Byway accompanied by towering limestone cliffs and a rushing mountain stream. Porcupines call this area home. Sadly we did not see those on our hike. #nexttime
