Day 4 – Mount Rushmore

With 3 days behind us, we got in our Model A’s and drove a short distance from Hill City to the iconic Mount Rushmore National Monument.  The goal was to start early for a photo shoot with the monument in the background.  We’ll show the actual photo in a future post, but for now check out the video we made showing the fun we had.

After adoring the view from the upper deck of the parking garage, we spent the morning enjoying the rest of the park.  Many of us returned in the evening for the after dark ceremony which included the lighting of the monument and a tribute to veterans.

During the day we got to enjoy the numerous attractions nearby including the 1880 train and the Presidential Wax Museum.
