Day 5 - Mount Rushmore
We made it into Rapid City, SD the night before & since we were making good travel time we took a day off to spend at Mt. Rushmore. Not to mention my feet, ankles & legs are beginning to look a bit Fred Flinstone-ish from the swelling so it was nice to take a break for a day.
To say it was windy there was an understatement. It was knock you off your feet, forget about having a hairdo windy. And cold. On our way up we saw snow flurries.
Coming up the hill & around the corner...I see it!!!!
And a bit closer...
If you go to Mt. Rushmore you really need to bring a zoom lens for your camera so you can get shots like this:
I could look right up George Washington's nose! ha!
We took a break to head to the gift shop. Cause we were fuh-REEZing!
Notice Olivia is wearing 2 of my jackets! Like I said, it was cold. And we did not have any winter coats with us!
Back outside to brave the cold & wind again. Then to get some lunch...we tried a bisen burger for the first time. It was yummy.
Oh, and it was our 10 yr anniversary :)
A few more shots heading back down...
Mt. Rushmore was something I'm definitely glad I got to see. We're hoping to head back there maybe in a few years. There was a lot more to do in and around Rapid City that we still want to check out.
By the way, here's a road trip tip that worked great for us. LEGOS.
Next up - 2 more days!
