Black Hills of South Dakota are pretty amazing themselves. In
addition to being known for having gold deposits, they are also home to
Mt. Rushmore. The faces of four of our greatest leaders are
carved into the granite formations at Mt. Rushmore. President(s)
Washington, Jefferson, Teddy Roosevelt, & Lincoln were chosen for
this monument back in the 1920s. At night, there is a lighting
ceremony that showcases the faces after a tribute to each leader.
Just south of Mt. Rushmore is Custer State park. Just like the
song, "Home Of The Range," it is a place where the buffalo roam and the
deer and antelope play. We stopped to have lunch at the famous
Game Lodge there. It was the summer home of President Calvin
Coolidge once, and Eisenhower stayed there too.
