We couldn’t wait to see the magnitude of Mount Rushmore, so before settling into our campsite we drove to the memorial as the sun was going down.
PRESIDENTS AT SUNSET
Avenue of Flags
Goats getting a bite to eat near the sculptures before bed time.
PRESIDENTS DURING THE DAY
The next morning we came back to take it all in during day light hours.
THE PRESIDENTIAL TRAIL
Sixty foot likenesses of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln representing the freedom, hopes and dreams of the people of the United States.
Mount Rushmore is primarily granite.
