I finally took the hike to the top of Harney Peak, (the highest peak East of the Rockies) at 7,242 feet in elevation. I am so glad I made the time -- beautiful vistas in every direction. I went by way of the Cathedral Spires trail, which is has its own powerful serenity. I can't get enough of this place. The Black Hills are awe inspiring and make a perfect place for wedding photography, or family portraits.
