Soaking up some morning light just before mass with the class of 2017. Last night we had an epic lodge at the base of Bear Butte and today these spiritually powerful students have been reflecting on their vocations as members of the human family. #bearbutte #stlabre #southdakota

Beautiful hike in the Black Hills β›°β›° The picture with the colorful cloths are Indian prayer cloths. They were all over the trees on the trail. #bearbutte

Aerial view of Bear Butte just outside of Sturgis. Who else is ready for greener grass and the sound of a thousand Harley's? #SturgisRally #BearButte

Bear Butte Mountain.... Just one of the reasons to come to the Black Hills of South Dakota.

I sure like how this came out. The final touches: I dulled the orange in the sun set and increased some dark areas with a blackend iridescent reflex blue in the sky. #blackhillsartist #bearbutte#1shotpaint#artjedi#milkyway

Look Simba, everything the light touches is our kingdom. πŸ’›β€οΈ#bearbutte #blackhills

I went out last night - well, morning - and shot some pretty awesome stuff with my friend @yushtameister and I'm still pretty blown away from it.

Happy Friday, friends!

The prayer flags waving in the wind on Bear Butte make sure the prayers of their makers continue always . . .

"Every person has to find their own power, because each of us possesses a certain power. Search yourself for that power, know how to reach it inside yourself, and then use that power in harmony with God - for good and not evil." Mathew King (Noble Red Man)

Bright and early on my way to #kota interview. Watching the #sunrise behind #bearbutte. #goodmorning

This bust of Frank Fools Crow is located outside the Visitor Center at Bear Butte State Park.

The Plaque below it reads:

Lakota Holy Man, Visionary, Ambassador, Healer and Storyteller "Give us a blessing so that our words and actions be one in unity, and that we will be able to listen to each other. In doing so, we shall with good heart walk hand in hand to face the future." Frank Fools Crow in prayer before the U.S. Senate, 1975

Frank Fools Crow, Ceremonial Chief of the Teton Lakota, lived from 1890 to 1989. As a frequent visitor to Bear Butte, it is believed he gained many healing powers from the mountain. His stories perpetuated the cultural richness of the Lakota people and included remembrances of his uncle, Black Elk.

Fools Crow's life was dedicated to the promotion of unity and respect for all people. He will always be remembered, not only by family and friends, but by all people of color and those who had the opportunity to shake his gentle hand, the hand of a great leader and a great gentleman.
