MtRushmore_BW_1 webDay 291 (October 19, 2014) – Mt. Rushmore, South Dakota

It’s official. I only have one state left to visit in these United States. This weekend I went on a little road trip. 900 + miles, 4 states and one sovereign nation later, all I have left is North Dakota. I actually never thought I would make it to see Mt. Rushmore. I didn’t really have a desire to so it…but boy is it impressive. Even after checking out the museum at the base I still can’t grasp how they carved those faces into the side of a mountain range.  And what’s even more impressive is the Crazy House sculpture that is still under construction. If and when it’s completed it will be the world’s largest sculpture at 641 feet (195 m) wide and 563 feet (172 m) high (at least according to the wiki page).  Regardless, Mt. Rushmore was well worth the 6 hour drive from Denver.
