This week Pegman takes us to the Black Hills in South Dakota in the West-Midwest, United States. Your mission is to write up to 150 words inspired by the prompt. Once your piece is polished, share it with others using the linkup below. Reading and commenting on others’ work is part of the fun!

Genre: Personal Musing
Word Count: 150

Friends often asked her, “Why don’t you go with him?”
She typed a new chapter to her latest work-in-progress. “To each their own vacation.”
