Mt. Rushmore

Of course when we were staying in Lead SD we HAD to visit Mt. Rushmore.  We hadn't been there for about 15 years and a few things had changed.  But we didn't notice any difference in the four magnificent sculptures of the presidents.  Today I thought I'd give each of them special recognition with their own photo.

As you look at them from left to right the order is Washington, Jefferson, Roosevelt and then Lincoln.

Washington is most dominant because he is located forward and he also gets a special profile viewing when you are on the road west of the park entrance.

I gotta say, they are all magnificent.  To give you an idea of the size of these guys, Washington is 60' tall, his nose is 20' long and his mouth is 18' wide.
