Wow ... September was a TOTAL blur. And now it's gone. The trip to South Dakota thrown into the mix made it all that much of a blur. It was a work trip for Running Strong for American Indian Youth, one of the non-profits I work for. It was me plus 6 other staff and 30 folks most over 55. We went to two reservations, Pine Ridge and Cheyenne River, a few touristy places like Mt Rushmore and the Mammoth Site, a bunch of Running Strong's programs and a bunch of museums. It was an amazing trip and I met some awesome people, both participants (the older folks) and some native Americans. And I took about 1600 photos. So let's start with the Hipstamatic shots! And it's great to be back!
The pictures include (in order) prairie of South Dakota, tipi, authentic covered wagon which is way, way smaller than you'd think, more prairie land and the wild horse sanctuary, old Ford in Chadron, Nebraska, tipi on Pine Ridge rez, farmer's market stuff and the Wounded Knee memorial.
