Sightseeing Day! Today we left early in the morning for the Badlands. We took a mile long hike, up a wooden ladder, around cliffs which led to a beautiful overlook. Several in our group chose to explore off-the-path rocks structures, which scared our adults a little more then they would have liked! We then headed to Wall Drug and ate lunch with Jack Moore and other church staff. From there we headed to Wind Cave. We took an hour long trek through the complex cave systems, exploring the narrow pathways and rock formations. We learned that an average human can fit through tiny crevices that triggered slight claustrophobia in some members of our group! Wind Cave is a sacred place for the Lakota people, as it is believed to be the portal which their ancestors entered this world from the spirit world. It was hot and tiring, but we had an amazing time!
(Scheduled itinerary) Sight Seeing Day - The day will begin with breakfast, followed by a drive to the Badlands and to see Wall Drug! After some sightseeing we will head back to home church, Christian Life Fellowship for dinner, vespers and music rehearsal.
