Mount Rushmore





We made a bike trip to Sturgis, South Dakota a couple of years ago. I had never seen Mount Rushmore. It was breathtaking, especially when framed as it was here. I took the photo from inside a tunnel through the mountain. The likenesses had recently been cleaned, hence the whiteness you see. Our country is beautiful!

For more Skywatch photos, visit Wiggers World.

Well this is not the usual view of Mt. Rushmore. I am with you on this one. The tunnel framed it perfectly. We were there with our children and took pictures. Our oldest girl is now 52. She was about 12 then.
