Back when Molly and I were courting,we often spent many evenings sitting in her Mom’s backyard. We talked about the things we wanted to do,places we wanted to go to and things we wanted to see. Number One on Molly’s list was always Mount Rushmore. I promised her we would go there. As we all know, life sometimes gets in the way of doing things. So,after 30 plus years, I am glad to report, my promise has been fulfilled.
It is hard to convey how Mount Rushmore grows on you when you get there. We have seen nearly all the angles that can be seen by numerous photographs so we make no claims as to having anything extraordinary as far as photography but Mount Rushmore is one of the iconic American places. Until you visit it in person,you can not really appreciate what an achievement it is.
Memorial Day seems appropriate to show you a few images.
