A deserted, fake ghost town (yes, in that order) on the way to Mount Rushmore.

     South Dakota was FULL of theme parks.....
       There were a lot of ghost towns (that were questionably authentic).

Mount Rushmore

      A view of this large monument from the parking lot.
       Chris had to get proof that he had been here.
    A very nice view of Washington, Jefferson, Roosevelt and Lincoln.
                  There were many mountain goats around the park.
            A closer view of Lincoln.
      Looking straight up Washington's nose.
     From near the bottom of a talus slide.
       A little closer view of Jefferson and Roosevelt.
      All four again from the very bottom.  It's possible to get to the top but we

               weren't up for the hike.
