Great photos, I've always wanted to go to Mt. Rushmore.

This would have to be one of the world's most amazing sculptures. It must have taken years to plan, design and carry out! Thanks for sharing,


great shots!! i love the blue sky...


Great photos. The viewpoint of the Monument with Tim in the foreground is awe-inspiring.


Love it! I have been to almost all 50 states, but I have not seen this yet. Can't wait to add it to our open ended world tour when we get to the US part!


Carolina-I hadn't been to Rushmore since I was a young child, so it was fun to go back now.

Peace-the carving was amazing. They had a public broadcasting television special about the creation of Mount Rushmore, and the site about the show makes for fascinating reading (I've linked to a few of the pages on the PBS site from my earlier Mount Rushmore story that I linked to this post). The PBS site had some cool vintage video of Mt. Rushmore's creation.

Jessie-we were lucky the day we were there...the weather was perfect, so we got some decent photos.

Jimmy-Tim occasionally whines when I put his photo up in a post, but I really did like this shot. He looked relaxed and happy--out with his cameras and traveling :)

Soul3-We want to go back to North and South Dakota. We only spent a few days in those two states, and there was sooooo much we didn't get to while we were there.

I'd never seen that shot with the amphitheater. Thanks!
