Mount Rushmore National Memorial, South Dakota

After traveling 2,656 miles from Delray Beach, Fl, we made it to Mount Rushmore in South Dakota. One of our goals on this trip was to tour this National Memorial and see the four great U.S presidents carved into the mountain. It was a breathing-taking view as we walked through the Avenue of Flags to the Grand View Terrace. Sculptor Gutzon Borglum began carving this great memorial to our nation's foundation and growth in 1927 and the colossal carving was finished in 1941. We also enjoyed attending the evening lighting program held in the park's amphitheater. Can I sing a verse of "America The Beautiful" now? (just kidding-Anne)
