Mount Rushmore, SD

The men of Mount Rushmore, South Dakota.... Washington, Jefferson, Roosevelt, and Lincoln. What a site this was. The sculptures were unbelievable and gigantic. We could even see Teddy's spectacles. I think that Roosevelt and Washington looked most like what I have seen in books.

This is on the way in to the memorial. We went to the night light show but my night pix did not turn out.

After the main entrance.... there was the walk of State flags and the 6 other flags (Washing DC & 5 territories). The whole program was something to remember. It was very patriotic with song and a salute to the military.

This is from a distance and later in the evening. Can you imagine climbing this high and creating a sculpture????
