Seeing the Big Boys

And I mean the Really Big Boys!
Mt. Rushmore-1
We had a beautiful day today as we visited Mount Rushmore and neighboring Custer State Park. And it wasn’t only the bright blue sky that made it beautiful – it was a day spent with our good friends, John and Rosie!
Mt. Rushmore-2
Mt. Rushmore was quite fascinating. We enjoyed a couple of great “Ranger Talks” that helped us better understand this monument – it’s purpose, why the presidents that are there are there, and how this mammoth sculpture was actually accomplished.

From there we headed a little south to take in some scenic drives through Custer State Park. We had lunch with the Bison –
