As there is rain in the forecast for tomorrow, I headed directly over to Mount Rushmore and was lucky to meet the four gentlemen in sunshine, surrounded by some photogenic clouds. Mount Rushmore National Monument represents the first 130 years of the history of the U.S. The sculptures of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln (from left to right) were carved in the granite rock 1927 - 1941 by Gutzon Borglum and 400 workers. The four had attracted ~ 3 Mio. visitors last year.
And I have to post this one as well, which our friend Mark shared with us. :-)
This night I will spent in the Bavarian Inn (Custer), just 30 min. from Mount Rushmore.
More to come.
