during this epic road trip, a. & i spent some time at mt. rushmore. we arrived in south dakota and after a short drive, checked into ellsworth air force base and bee-lined straight to this national monument. by the time we arrived, it was close to 5:30 pm & the suns last rays were lighting up the sky.
absolutely freezing chilly, we were among very few people at the park, making it a spectacular time to relish in the fascination of four very large heads carved into the face of a mountain.
