Spearfish Canyon

Monday July 20, 2020

I drove through the scenic Spearfish Canyon in the Black Hills to enjoy the beauty and to hike to a couple of waterfalls. This is another must do if you are in the area.

FUN FACT

• The greatest temperature change in history was in 1943 in Spearfish, SD. It went from -4 degrees farenheit to 45 degrees farenheit in 2 MINUTES! 😮

• The largest, most extensive and best preserved Tyrannosaurus rex specimen was found near Faith, SD. (Approx. 100 north of Sturges, SD).

Spearfish Falls

Beautiful picnic table.

Roughlock Falls, pictured above, can be hiked to by trail or driven to. The trail was currently closed since a tornado had just gone through the area a few days prior to my visit. So the trail was unaccessable. I had to drive to the falls and I could only view the upper falls. There were still trees covering the path to the lower falls.

Bridal Veil Falls, pictured below, cascades 60 feet and is located along the roadside. No hiking needed to see this beauty.
