Vagabonding Mount Rushmore

DESTINATION : Mount Rushmore

Mount Rushmore National Memorial is arguably the largest sculpture in the world carved out of a granite mountain. The depicted faces are of four former US presidents; George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln. Although Mount Rushmore was originally planned to include each of the presidents’ bodies from the waist up, each head measures a staggering 18 meters high. This mountain sculpture is located in the Black Hills region of South Dakota by Keystone and is traveled by over 2,000,000 tourists a year.

    My family was thinking of visiting Mount Rushmore this summer early July.

    Then the whole group drove to South Dakota.

    Mount Rushmore is famous for the four presidents honored there.

    Tourists came from as far away as Alaska.

    Another trip is set for next Fourth of July.
