What fun we had today! First, we drove to Mount Rushmore. What a spectacular National Monument. The weather was perfect this morning. Low 70’s and clear.
Next we drove through Custer State Park. It had beautiful scenery, lovely facilities, well maintained roads and several surprises like scenic drives through unspoiled forests, narrow one lane tunnels through granite mountains and wildlife including buffalo, antelope, prairie dogs, and birds of all sizes.
Leaving the park we drove the Needles Highway, a narrow windy road through some of the most beautiful and unique terrain we have ever seen. All and all, a delightful day.
Tomorrow, back on the road for 2-1/2 more days! Stay tuned!!

Wonderful pictures! Makes us want to travel in our own country again! Thanks for commentary as well!
WOW! Great pics. Callie said you two should write a book.
Gutsin Borglum (sp?) was the carver of those heads. He had an estate in Stamford, Ct, which was divided up after his death. We lived on a road that had probably been part of that estate because it was named: Gutsin Borglum Road.
Some trivia for your diaries. Xoxox
Love it! Talk about 6 degrees of separation?! Thanks for the comment!
