Mount Rushmore

After hitting Wall Drug on Wednesday, we carried on to see what other sites South Dakota held.  We decided since PChad & the kids had never seen Mt Rushmore, to take the detour off our route.  We were pleasantly surprised to discover the entrance fee was a mere $11, & good for a full year!

I tried to get a good photo of the three of them...

Then a nice couple offered to take a picture of all of us, in exchange for taking a picture for them

 What the kids wanted to do the most was run up & down the seats in the ampitheatre.  I can't complain though.  The entrance fee was cheap, & we got our photo!

I was surprised though that in the pamphlet that you are given on your way into the park with all the info about who carved the faces, how long it took them, how many people come to visit, etc.  No where did it list the names of the presidents who are on the mountain.  I did pretty well though & only couldn't figure out one of them!

Did you know there are actually 5 heads on Mt Rushmore?
