After our one day stop at Yellowstone, Luke and I made our way to Mt. Rushmore. It is said to be quite the patriotic experience. I was actually rather surprised at how elaborate the attraction was. When you enter the site, you walk down an aisle of State flags. Just beyond these flags are the Presidents. Down below the viewing platform is the orchestra stage. I believe this is where musical events are performed during the evening lighting ceremony. Luke and I decided to head to dinner rather than stay around until 9:00 p.m. for the ceremony. We did however, take a little walk around the President's trail. It was quite peaceful and offered a great view of the Presidents. Here are a few pics from the one-hour stop over.
