Beginning the day. Morning in the Black Hills.
On the way to Deadwood we passed a couple of lakes. The first was Sheridan Lake.
I talked Don into stopping so I could get some pictures of the ducks, but the lighting wasn't very good. There was smoke from controlled burning which blocked the sunlight.
The next lake was Pactola Lake. The water was a beautiful blue. The wind was blowing, but the view was worth the chill.
Another view of the lake.
It was an awesome drive to Deadwood.
We made it!
Next stop Downtown Deadwood.
