Hiking in Custer State Park with Sue in my mind

Wednesday May 22nd

I had no intention of staying in South Dakota for very long. Surprisingly I am very much enjoying these Native American landscapes. I made it to Custer State Park almost by mistake and I have been so impressed with it that I stayed two nights. This morning I hiked the tallest peak in the area, the Harney Peak, not very high but beautiful landscape. Always that I am hiking Sue’s memories come to my mind very vividly, I felt her with me the same way I felt her on my climb to Kilimanjaro. It was a good feeling and kept me company.

No tenia ningun plan de quedarme en esta zona del pais, pero he estado muy impresionado con Dakota del Sur, tanto que me he quedado un par de dias. Hoy he hecho una andada Buena hasta la cima de una montañica en el parque de Custer. Siempre que estoy de andada me acuerdo mucho de Sue, me ha hecho compañia todo el dia. Mañana de camino al parque nacional de Gran Teton en Wyoming.

 

I could not see much of the summit as it was cloudy and windy… enough of that!!! On the way down it cleared up a little. It was nice, no complains. Tomorrow I am making it half way to Wyoming; hopefully stay at a rest area along 25 hwy. Gran Teton NP is next.

Hi Carlos, The pictures are beautiful, you are so gifted. We all must grieve in our own way and I'm hoping your adventures will help you move on. Each of us must take our own time to grieve. When I lost my spouse it took me a very long time. Someday I will tell you my experience. Only with Gods help did I mke it through and God will help you also. I've just read your memorys of when Sue would hike with you. She did that for you, to be with you. She loved you so much I will talk with you again soon. Take care of yourself

Carlos, I want to be there with you. I cry with you and laugh with you. You are on such a wonderful adventure that most of us will never experience. With each post I feel closer to you and Sue. What a wonderful way to honor her. I love South Dakota, but Wyoming is my favorite. Keep sharing!
