Title: Sica Hollow
Post by: SDMF_Reaps on September 29, 2014, 11:18:34 am
Hi all,

I took a ride to Sica (Shee-cha) Hollow (http://gfp.sd.gov/state-parks/directory/sica-hollow/) this weekend.  I had fun and did some hiking, probably around 3 miles or more in my new Forma Adventures.  They are awesome.

Here are some pics of the scenery.

Yum... mushrooms.

I took the long way back and stopped at a 100' tower.

After all the hiking up and down hills it was still a fun climb up.  I made it 3/4 of the way up before I had to slow down to a normal pace.  The bike looks small.  Those people down there are a Brazilian Salsa band.  We had a bit of a language barrier but it was fun.  Leo was cold, I told him wait for the snow!

Nice view up here.

I have a hard time passing historical markers.  Good thing I travel gravel most of the time.  This day I just wanted to make tracks.

And near Fort Sisseton.  I'll get pictures of that another day.

Not much talk just a bunch of pictures.  It was a nice day trip.

Those history plaques are cool.  I always stop to read those; drives my kids crazy!
