I spent a lot of time in the Horsethief Lake area this weekend.  The lake itself is just a little tarn, so it's of little interest.  But it's located halfway between Mt. Rushmore and Harney Peak right in the middle of some spectacular surface geology.

I hiked the area- on and off trails- Friday, Saturday, and Sunday and got a real good feel for it.  There are several small caves in the rock walls and I think a hike-in camp trip is in order.  I found a way up to the top of a couple of the spires and the view on the top is... uh... nice.

It rained all day Saturday.  I love hiking in the rain.  A lot of the things on this planet are at their best when they're soaking wet.
