Mt Rushmore, SD


I got to be tourista at Mt Rushmore. It was nice getting there. It was really crowded though at the monument and respectfully so but a little uncomfortable crowd wise. Oh yeah cause BUS full of people show up. Other then the crowds it was neat. I can say I’ve been there in person yeah.

Taken before we got into the monument area.

For some reason I thought the monument was going to be bigger. I think it was from looking at too many post cards or something. I mean it is a whole mountain, so yes it is big. I didn’t read the literature and stuff, so I wonder you know; how do you pick a mountain and think I’ll put a couple of faces on it. LOL

When I look at a mountain I don’t think ~ wow I think I should chisel my kids faces into it. But that’s me. LOL

It pretty amazing seeing the mountain/rock sculptured. It took like a couple of hundred people to chisel the side of the mountain. That in itself is hard to believe.
