2016—Four Really Big Guys

Mt. Rushmore is just outside Custer State Park.  I’d never been there and when Monday turned out to be rainy, foggy, and gloomy, Moose drove us there since most of the wildlife had retreated from the areas where we could view them.  The presidents carved into the mountain (Washington, Jefferson, Teddy Roosevelt, and Lincoln) are four really big guys in more ways than one.  Their noses measure about 20 feet.  The second photo is a profile of George.  We drove Iron Mountain Road that leads back to Custer State Park from Mt. Rushmore.  The road has pigtails which loop in a curlicue around and over themselves and  tunnels carved in the mountain that perfectly frame the sculpture.  It is quite spectacular.
