South Dakota

My new job in Colorado has me working with addressing. One day I was mapping something in South Dakota and thought “I wonder how far I am form Mt. Rushmore?” Six hours didn’t seem bad. I texted Rachel immediately and asked if we should do that weekend.

Done.

Also: 6 hours is awful, esp in the dark and esp when you get pulled over in Wyoming at 9pm because they think you’re drug trafficking.

Needless to say, Mt. Rushmore is a bit underwhelming. The craftsmanship given when it was built is pretty impressive though. (completed in 1941)

It’s location is a bit ironic as well considering Native Americans pay no mind to who’s president and what the rest of America is caught up in.
