While I only lived in Spearfish for a few short years as a BHSU student, I can most definitely say that it is an excellent place to live or vacation. My favorite part about the town is the scenery; it’s breathtaking. The fall season in Spearfish was always my favorite. The colors are absolutely gorgeous. A hike up Spearfish Canyon during this time of year is a photographer’s paradise. Winter in Spearfish is also a good time for those scenic pictures. I know some people may differ with me on this, but I grew up in Colorado, so snow is a must wherever I live. I remember peeking out my window on snowy nights and feeling like I was right at home. Of course, I couldn’t write about Spearfish without mentioning the people. Whether it was lending a helping hand, or just saying hello, the people of Spearfish always put a smile on my face. There is nothing like a quaint little town with beautiful scenery, amazing weather, and wonderful people.
