We made it to Mount Rushmore by lunch time and it started raining on us the minute we ate our picnic lunch out of the car. Lightly at first and then heavier but we weren't going to leave because of a little rain! We hung out for a while and it blew past us. Last night we saw lightning storms in the distance. It was so awesome! The kids really enjoyed looking for them, except Noah kept missing them and would screech each time we'd say that we saw one. He finally saw one so he was happy.
Mount Rushmore was awesome! The work they did to sculpt and carve and blast it (they used dynamite!) to perfection in the early 1900's is amazing. I'm constantly amazed with the ingenuity and creativity along with the perseverance people have had to make our nation amazing and beautiful.
