2018—Missing Profile

He’s back there somewhere!  Two years ago when I visited Mount Rushmore for the first time, I took the first photograph below of George Washington’s profile from  a vantage point around the side from the typical front view of the monument.  This year, the fog completely enveloped us and George.  For comparison, I took a photograph in the direction of George’s 60 foot tall profile but could only guess where it might be.  On review, I realize two years ago I was closer to the end of the parking lot so the tree on the left does not appear in the photograph but the cluster of trees on the right is in both photographs.  Even Adobe Camera Raw’s powerful Dehaze filter produced only a brownish smudge where the mountain and George are.
