Mt. Rushmore, Memorial Day 2015

In South Dakota we left the great farms behind and moved into ranching country, and then onto the formidable Badlands. We were surprised too to come across the Cold War’s Minuteman missile site, now turned into a national monument. Before ending up in Deadwood, located in  Black Hills mining country, we stopped at Mt. Rushmore–fitting for Memorial Day for sure.
