In March I took a backpacking trip with 3 of my best friends, Dave, Emily and Kristin. We drove 16 hours from Saint Louis, MO to Devil's Tower, WY. After a day at the tower we drove a few more hours to The Badlands, SD. The trip is really unexplainable in words, but we had a lot of fun climbing up places we probably shouldn't have climbed, laughing way too hard and huddling together in a tent to keep warm from the chilling wind.
A big portion of the trip, I didn't bring my camera because I didn't want to carry the extra weight, but sometime soon there could be a montage of the trip on Dave's Youtube channel at: https://www.youtube.com/user/probsty999
6 am - Devils Tower
Trekking to the edge of the tree line to feel the warmth of the sun.
Circling around the tower.
Ahhh, the sun.
"I think I can see our campsite."
Always trying to get the highest view.
Walking through a maze.
