The next day was Aunt Bonnie's annual "Hike for Hell." It wasn't supposed to be miserable. The girls had never been to Wyoming, so I thought I would cross that off of their list and we could hike Devil's Tower. There were a lot of people due to the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, so we opted for the quieter, 2.8 mile trail. We ran 3 miles in May and figured this would be a breeze.
Little did we know we wished for a breeze. It was over 100 and there had been a fire a few years ago, thus there were not many trees. To top it off, do you see Devil's Tower? If you look closely the very top can be seen way in the distance.
We survived another of Aunt Bonnie's hikes. The girls want a shirt with that claim. We barely made Bear Butte last year and Devil's Tower was hot as heck. In the end, we were laughing as we picniced in the air conditioned Jeep eating Sierra's awesome Jello.
