During our recent trip through South Dakota, we passed over Badlands and Black Hills. Mount Rushmore, which is part of the Black Hills, is perhaps the most popular National Park in this region.

Though the Badlands National Park, has its different appeal and beauty as well.
Native to this mountainous terrain is the mountain goat. This creature is agile and sure-footed, and able to climb on steep rocks with grace of a ballerina and steadiness of an experienced rock climber.
We were fortunate to see one. I mean the mountain goat in above’s photo, not the one below.

Not to be outdone, and getting inspiration from the mountain goat, my son and I, strutted this “rock-surfing” pose for posterity.
Sorry, the camera did not capture a photo when we dove off the cliff.
Just kidding. Our photographer did not allow us.
