5 Gorgeous Frozen Waterfalls In South Dakota That Must Be Seen To Be Believed
During the spring, summer, and fall months, people flock to our beautiful waterfalls to watch them majestically cascade over the pristine landscape… but what about winter? Why are we neglecting winter waterfalls in all of their frozen glory? To see what I am talking about, check out these 5 gorgeous frozen South Dakota waterfalls that must be seen to be believed:
1. Falls Park (Sioux Falls)
Falls Park is a sight to see year round, but until you see them literally frozen in time, you have yet to experience what a treasure this SoDak landmark truly is! (Bonus: In December, the Falls are not only frozen, but all aglow from their annual Winter Wonderland light spectacular!)
2. Spearfish Falls (Spearfish)
Fed by the nearby Spearfish Creek, Spearfish Falls is an unbelievable 47-foot-tall cascade that was once the most popular attraction in all of South Dakota! After seeing this incredible picture, can you guess why?
3. Bridal Veil Falls (Spearfish)
Located just down the road from Spearfish Falls, Bridal Veil Falls is quite possibly the most iconic of South Dakota waterfalls, thanks to its 60-foot-tall cascades and picturesque rocky backdrop.
4. Roughlock Falls (Lead)
No matter the time of year, Roughlock Falls is one of the Black Hills' most spectacular of landmarks! Housed within the Roughlock Falls State Nature Area, the namesake falls drop off a 50-foot ledge and even contain several other smaller spouts.
5. Devil's Gulch (Garretson)
You know the legend surround Devil's Gulch and Jesse James' legendary jump, but did you know that the falls are also pretty dang lovely in the winter? (Unlike Jesse James, this is not a legend, but absolute fact!)
