Cottonwood Reservoir and Cold Brook Reservoir near Hot springs,SD

After a fun time at the Mammoth Site in Hot Springs, South Dakota we decided to stop at a couple of reservoirs to do some kayaking.

Cottonwood Reservoir was almost totally dry. We hiked and watched for rattlesnakes and mountain lions. 
You can barely see Shae and Cody at the top of the cliff overlooking the reservoir.
 There are so many grasshoppers. Gabriel and Josephine kept trying to step on them!

Where is the water?
So, we left there and tried Cold Brook Reservoir. It was great. The water was clear as could be. The guys said you could see to the bottom even way out.

The reservoir was beautiful. The kids had a nice time playing on the beach while others kayaked.

 We also saw a museum at the VA hospital. It was a beautiful structure but was closed.

It was a fun day and we were totally exhausted by the time we got back. 

It is nice to come home after a long day.
Sleep good!
