Mt. Rushmore

We visited Mount Rushmore this morning, Ken has never been there, I've been there once several years ago.
We were up early so we missed some of the crowd, the sky was beautiful when we arrived and later it became cloudy. We happened to make it for the first tour which made it more interesting too.We then headed to Hill City to check out the 1880 Train, we made it in time for the next departure so we chased it and took pictures at the railroad crossings. It was starting to rain by the time it arrived in Keystone, but when we got back to the RV the sun was shining.

At Mount Rushmore, I meet this original Rushmore driller, he has a little book on his experiences which I bought and he signed.

Our first wildlife photo op was this goat grazing on the side of the road, we did see a few turkeys, a spotted towhee and dark eye juncos.

We had a full day even though the rain ended it early.
