Mount Rushmore in Autumn   4 comments

It is 01000 hours and I just returned from a ceremony at Mount Rushmore at night! It was an excellent way to cap off a 10 hour drive day… my longest drive day yet. I left MN in some seriously heavy wind that literally was blowing the Honda around. It was tiring just keeping the car on the road especially when passing 18 wheelers. Stopping in Mitchell, SD, I decided to forgo the corn palace to charge on towards Wall, SD and the famous tourist trap Wall Drug. Finally, I arrived in Rapid City, SD and called 3 different motels to negotiate the best rate. Got a Best Western 25 miles from Abe Lincoln for 55 bucks. Taco Bell beckoned after I saluted George Washington under a starry, cold South Dakota sky. A huge bat flew right by Georgie’s 20 foot long nose.
