Mount Rushmore

On our way home from Minnesota we took a little detour and stopped to see Mount Rushmore and Crazy Horse. I was super excited since this was my first time seeing Mt. Rushmore in person and while the heads are big, they aren't as big as you think they are going to be. It was such an incredible feeling to be surrounded by all that history and to remember what these men stood for and founded our country on. It wasn't the warmest of days but once we were inside the park the wind died down enough that we could enjoy looking around. Unfortunately we were unable to see Crazy Horse since this huge wall of fog had settled over the mountain and all you could see for miles was gray.

The heads according to Joseph. Brrrrr!!!
Mama with Joseph, every so often there is a picture of me.

Four very amazing men.
Keeping warm and being cheesy.

Thanks for posting these, Lynsey, I've only seen Mt. Rushmore once...when Ben was younger than Joseph.
