Day 1 – Mount Rushmore

We ended the day with Mount Rushmore. I had a “tourist” intuition and decided to go there while the sun was still shining rather than head to the hotel. They were predicting rain for the rest of the week and I didn’t want to miss out on good weather. I’m completely convinced that there are over a trillion photos taken of Mount Rushmore yearly.

I took this waiting for my daughter in the bathroom.
Look mom! A postcard!

The ice cream at Mount Rushmore is amazing. This is strawberry cheesecake.

So after a few days we decided to go BACK to Mount Rushmore to buy some souvenirs and also since our pass is good for a whole year, might as well use it! It was raining this time so no blue sky but the shadows weren’t as harsh on the presidents so I took some more shots:

It wasn't quite raining at this point, but the lady didn't want to take any chances. Her hair was perfect.
