South Dakota:: Part II (Mount Rushmore)

After we were in Sioux Falls we headed west to Rapid City--the closest city to Mount Rushmore. On the way I made Samuel stop in Pierre, South Dakota so that I could take a picture of the capital building there. I am a little bit obsessed with state capital buildings these days, I'm so happy Samuel caters to my silliness when he can. ;)
The day before we left Rapid city we decided we had to go see Mount Rushmore. It was everything I had dreamed it would be since I was a little girl. It was beautiful, and amazing, and interesting, and incredible and it made me feel so proud to be an American. It also felt really good to check it off of my bucket list. I love discovering this world with my sweet husband. I can't wait for our next adventure!

Do you think they will ever finish it?
