Saturday, the dogs and i did check out the Mickelson Trail, a converted rail bed from the Burlington Northern line, that was used in the 1880s to transport ore between Custer, SD and Lead/Deadwood. it runs a total of about 110 miles. we covered about 4 miles (sad) because it was such slow going on the soft Spring snow.
Sunday morning, the dogs and i strolled around the town (which is *very* quiet on Sundays, i must say...) and snapped a few photos while out on our walk-about.
it was a nice relaxing weekend, and i anticipate good days of running the trails in future weeks, after the snow melts out a bit.
