Day 2: Hiking, fossils, swimming and smores

A group picture at a scenic overlook. Windy at the top, moments later the camera and tripod blew over and hit the ground.

Emily Fite--- It was so hot when we were hiking today but it was so fun and I can't wait for the 5 mile hike on Friday. We also found a lot of fossils and when we got back we went swimming :). And the smores were amazing!!!

Fawna Harris---Today was really fun. We went climbing and visited the White Cliffs, which were really windy. We aslo saw a lot of animals like prairie dogs, birds, etc.

Gabby Murnan---Who knew that you could get the plague from a prairie dog or detonate a bomb with a cell phone? Not us!

Mike Hula: Well I assume you've read most of the responses. I just wanna say how much fun I'm having and how much respect I have for these people. Not only have we all come together as a big family, we never get tired of eachother. Everyday is full of suspense, and excitement. Keep reading, and we'll keep you updated. We miss you all, But we're having one of the greatest adventure's of a life, and it's an honor to be allowed to tag along.

Ashley Finkbeiner---Today was so much fun. I love seeing the different animals. Finding the fossils was so cool. I was excited when i found an animal jaw. The hike was fun to. Tomorrow is going to be fun to...Mnt.Rushmore. Yay!!!

Devin Schulze--- Wow, gotta love all the cliffs here. I love it up here, has to be the 2nd best state I've been to. Our days have been full of exciment and Yellow clover. Can't wait till tomorrow.

Kristina Willis--- Today we had a blast! We went out and got to explore throughout the different landscapes and saw such amazing scenery it was beautiful. Everyone got a little burnt but besides that all is well, the pool felt great after a long day in the desert. Going to Mt. Rushmore tomorow cant wait!

Today was a great day of exploring! Fossils and hiking...doesn't get any better. Tomorrow off to Wall Drug, South Dakota School of Mines, and Mt. Rushmore!!! ---Mr. Perez
