I discovered that Mount Rushmore is actually very close to Devils Tower. It is less than a two hour drive to the east, within South Dakota. I got up early and headed to Mount Rushmore in the Jeep. It was quite impressive to see Mount Rushmore in person. The details in the sculptures were amazing.
I enjoyed walking on the path that lead right below the sculpture. Until I got close, I never knew that Teddy Roosevelt had glasses.
After viewing Mount Rushmore, I drove over to see the ongoing Crazy Horse sculpture. It will be much larger than Mount Rushmore when finished. The white sculpture is the template and the actual sculpture is being blasted out of the mountain. What an enormous task to complete.
