Mt. Rushmore National Memorial

We almost didn't go into Mount Rushmore. You can see it from the road. Technically it's free, but it costs $10 to park (no discounts given). Our parking fee was good for the year, but when you're from out of state you don't exactly plan to come back before the next year. But we're glad we stopped.

Most of the other tourists had left, so it wasn't that crowded. The hall of flags was neat.

We took a walkway up closer to the figures, but couldn't get very close. I'm glad to be an American! The Founding Fathers had tremendous vision and did their best to create a government that allowed as much freedom as possible within a government system. I appreciate their effort and am blessed by their sacrifice and the sacrifice of others to maintain it.

On the way out, we saw a momma and baby mountain goat. (I love this picture!)

This one was cool too.
Unfortunately someone (failing to heed several signs) came in with a dog and scared the goats away.
