Today we headed to the iconic Mount Rushmore. We are staying just 15 miles from there so it was a short drive.
After you park at the parking garage, you walk up the steps and there it is. It is so impressive, a picture just can't show its actual size.
After hiking around the base of the memorial, we headed towards the Needles Highway.
The highway includes 14 miles of sharp turns, low tunnels, and impressive granite spires.
This is Sylvan Lake, absolutely beautiful.
Another impressive sight are the tunnels. You can actually park here to the side and watch vehicles go through.
This part of South Dakota has so much to see and do!
