One of the things we do every time we are in Custer, S.D. is to hike to the top of Harney Peak. I’m getting a little long in the tooth to be doing it but we met a fellow who was hiking to the top who was 90 years old and hikes to the top every year on his birthday.

This is a sacred place to the Native Americans so you will see offerings near at the top of the peak.

Several times when we have been at the top we have encountered Mountain Goats.

A stone fire lookout tower is located at the top of the peak.
