We headed to Mount Rushmore and it was great! The girls were so excited as we walked in and I have to admit Dave and I were too. This was somewhere we both have wanted to see since we were kid. Honestly I was surprised how much the kids enjoyed it, but glad we all had a good time.
Walking through the hall of flags (I think thats what it was called)
Dancing on the stage below the heads
Getting there third Junior Ranger Badges
Sculptors Cottage....what Mount Rushmore should have looked like if it had been finished fully
Views from our walks along the trail to get closer to the heads
Teepees near the trail
We headed back to Hill City and shopped around and got some yummy taffy and had lunch before heading back the campsite. That night we headed back to the night ceremony at Mount Rushmore. It was incredible. We watched a great movie and then they lit up the heads. After that they retired the flag with all the those that served in the military. The whole thing was really neat and we were glad we keep the kids up late to see it.
