Day 3 – Mount Rushmore and Needles Highway

It was a great day today- plenty of sunshine and great for riding.  We went through Keystone and up to Mount Rushmore, which was a really unique place to visit.  I read in an article that about 90% of all the carving in the monument was done with dynamite.  That is amazing!  From there, we went over and hit the Needles Highway and spent most of the day there, driving through the parks and seeing the majestic beauty of God’s creation.  I got sunburned… again….. but it was a great day!  Dad wanted to see the buffalo and there were plenty to see in a pasture on the wildlife loop.  A long day for sure but full of great times and memories!  This is a picture of one of the tunnels on the Needles Highway.
