Minnesota woman survives more than 80-foot fall down South Dakota cliff
"A Minnesota woman miraculously survived after falling more than 80 feet down a cliff in a South Dakota state park Monday.
The woman, only identified as being 28 years old, was visiting Palisades State Park, roughly 20 miles northwest of Sioux Falls, when she fell around 5:30 p.m., according to the Minnehaha County Sheriff's Office."
I was sipping coffee and skimming headlines when I saw the one posted above. I immediately said to myself it was at Palisades. Clicking on the article... it was.
Readers of Coffee Talking may remember my 'Girls Road Trip' with one of my daughters; camping across the state of South Dakota. We started on the Eastern border and camped our way across the state, ending at the Western border.
Palisades was a great park and contrary to the news article... it's a really safe park. If you are smart. And although the news story didn't say why or how the 28 year old woman fell... I think most of us would assume "probably taking a selfie on the cliff edge". Whether or not she was, I don't know. But it's a beautiful park that offers mostly flat hiking trails and even prairie like areas, but also cliffs, rock bluffs, a bridge, wooded areas, waterside hikes... it had everything.
We absolutely loved it and even though we did do some climbing, it was always done in a safe manner and we weren't doing selfies.
It's just the coffee talking again.....
