Day 8 - Good Morning Mt. Rushmore

We awakened to rainy skies in Hill City, SD. We decided we would ignore the 80% forecast and go to Mt. Rushmore.
Cloudy, cool and fabulous time to go - right when they open at 8:00 am. Hardly anyone else was here.
It was so majestic. Did you know that 90%of the sculpture was Don with dynamite? That astounds me!
On to the Black Hills!

We drove through the Big Horn Mountains - this was our favorite part of the trip.  It was so majestic.  We loved every minute of the Big Horn Mountains! 

There were signs all over that said to watch out for open range areas where the cows and horses had the run of the land!


We took Joanna and Caroline here when they were 3 and 5!  They still remember the Flintstones!

I swear Crazy Horse looked just like this 30 years ago!
