Photographer's Note

Spearfish Falls

Spearfish Canyon
The Black Hills
South Dakota.

When photographing waterfalls it is always a great idea to bring along an axe or chain saw to cut down any obstructing trees or foliage ...
(no no just teasing .. they were already like this .. I swear) ...

My two favorite "natural" places in the Black Hills are Custer State Park in the South and Spearfish Canyon in the North.

There are three very nice waterfalls in the canyon .. the one I didn't get to this trip is the roadside one .. at least I saved the easy one for another time.

The parking lot of the Latchstring Inn is the best place to get at Spearfish and Roughlock Falls from. Roughlock is about a mile to the West and accessed by a trail or road. Spearfish Falls is a quick 3/4 mile loop trail from the Inn.

We did an evening walk to both falls and then had dinner at the Inn.
