What a sight! I was surprised by how beautiful the Black Hills area was. It was so green with rock out-croppings and pine trees. The Mt Rushmore experience was awesome. We walked the short trail below the monument and took lots of pictures from different views of the monument. I did not realize that the Monument was started in 1927 and not finished until 1940. It would have been nice to see the lighting of the monument at night, but we had 3 1/2 hours driving plus another time change today.

I forgot to bring in the cameras tonight, so I'll add pictures later.
