There is something about the majestic beauty of a sunny winter day, gliding through the deep snow on a pair of cross country skis. Besides the wind, it was just a perfect afternoon to enjoy some exercise and time with friends.
We tried a new trail - Sunny Meadows, which is part of the Eagle Cliff trails near Lead, SD. This trail head is 9.4 miles from the Cheyenne Crossing intersection and has a "Sunny Meadows" sign posted at the parking lot.
Once we made it to the bottom of the hill, we connected up to The Loop trail and took that back to the Bratwurst trail and back to the vehicles.
This area is one of my favorites in the Black Hills for cross country skiing, though to be fair, I haven't made it to many other ones yet!
