Meanwhile, I wanted to post pictures of our trip to Mount Rushmore...
We drove through three of these tunnels on our way to the monument. Each tunnel perfectly frames Mt. Rushmore, and you get a spectacular view as you travel through each one.
We spent several hours at the park. The kids did a series of activities to earn a Junior Park Ranger badge. They really got into it and learned a lot at the same time.

I don't have time to write all that I want to about our visit to Rushmore and all of the other amazing places in the Black Hills of South Dakota. This might be my last chance to post before we return home next Friday, so I'll post more after we're back home.
Have a great weekend!
