Mount Rushmore!

We made it to Mount Rushmore! Max's Destination Imagination Team chose Mount Rushmore as the focus of their challenge last year. We spent several months studying the history of the monument and then performing a play about it. Max was George Washington. We really wanted to be able to take his to see the actual place while it was all fresh in his mind and I am so glad we made it!
The guy who took our photo managed to miss the monument!

These guys were hanging out on top of the parking garage!

There is a wonderful visitors center at the park with two great films about the building of the monument and another about the wildlife in the surrounding park. The kids loved the bookstores and we picked up several great books about the presidents and sculptors.
