Mount Rushmore

While visiting my dad in Scottsbluff, the Farmer decided to take a day trip up to Mount Rushmore with the family.

Here the family is out on a walk to take a closer look at some buffalo.


Funny Story:  As we were starting down the hill on this 'non-trail' route to look at the buffalo, I made a simple comment about "This reminds me of our honeymoon." (you know, the one where the Farmer led me off the trail and into poison oak)  Anyway, right after I took the below picture, I got stung!  It HURT! And the Farmer's response: "See, when you say things like that it always comes back to bite you in the butt."  LOL


After we got back to the car and started down the road, a buffalo walked right by on the road.  Does anyone else see the humor in that???


Our first view of the Mount


While traveling, we took the back road.  We drove through several tunnels.  They were very cool and the kids loved them.  We did think it a bit crazy that on all these one lane roads, people would get out and walk all along the road causing more travel jamming. 


The other really cool thing along our route were these one lane roads. They were very narrow with hardly any shoulder surrounded by trees.  Very cool.


We're getting closer.


Once at the park, we started counting license plates. We saw 29 different states in just the few hours we were there.  


I'll put the rest of the pictures in other posts so that they don't get too long.
