Enter Paul Matson, one of my best friends from Yankton High School and one of the best friends a person could have. Paul is a medical doctor living in Portland, Oregon, with a propensity to return to South Dakota occasionally to share some time. Usually there's some hiking involved. This year, he flew into Rapid City several days in advance of pheasant hunting in parts further East. Great timing.
|Now, there's a hike for a couple of old friends. Old Baldy Mountain.|

|Still a few golden leaves left.|
|Getting a little dark by the time we found our way back to the trail head.|
