Mount Rushmore

My photos are finally here! I have not been able to figure out how to get photos from my phone to my computer with a new APP that was installed. But they are all accessible now.

So let's go back a couple of weeks. After the last big kid left, Dar and Sean came to town. Beth left on Wednesday and Dar and Sean came on Thursday! On Friday we left for Mt. Rushmore! We did a turn around trip which I was really not looking forward to. But it turned out great and two days was just the right amount of time.

At 6:00 AM we left the house. Our first stop was the breeder. She has offered to watch Charlie whenever we need it, but being an hour away we probably won't take her up on it too much. This time, however, she was right on the way.

We made pretty good time after that, and after a detour in Lusk, Wyoming due to a flood, we arrived at Mt. Rushmore right around 2:00 PM.

It looks exactly as you imagine it.

I love how the California and Colorado flags are right next to each other. I prefer to think of it as fate, but it's probably alphabetical order.

Did you know Mt. Rushmore was never finished?

When completed, it was supposed to look like this. But they ran out of money. You can see there was supposed to be clothing for Washington and much more detail of the hair and body of Lincoln.

We arrived at sculpture center just as this ranger was telling us all about it.

We hiked back to to the car on a different path them we came in on.

The surrounding forest was really beautiful.
