This short story tells the tale of the author’s hike to the top of Harney Peak in the Black Hills of South Dakota. Harney Peak is the South Dakota highpoint, or highest naturally occurring geographic point in the state. The elevation is 7,242 feet above sea level. Starting from Sylvan Lake in Custer State Park, the climb was a half-day walking adventure on a beautiful summer’s day in 1995. The hike took place on the outbound leg of an 8,000-mile vacation that took the author through 23 states. The long cross-country drive he called an Ameritrek and after the first trip he started exploring the United States year after year in other Ameritreks, eventually driving over 100,000 miles. Along the way he visited the highpoints of 45 states. South Dakota was the first one.
