Mount Rushmore's Mall

Mount Rushmore’s Mall

The greatest of these attractions of course in Mount Rushmore, in the heart of the Black Hills. That is the stop of the day, and at Noon on a Saturday, the place is overwhelmed with mobs of gape-jawed tourists, rambling rudely about.

There are two parking garages, and after a fruitless attempt in the Lincoln lot, we find a spot in the Washington lot, and proceed up the elevator to the main viewing level. Mum is quite astonished – she was not aware this vast plaza, immortalized in square blocks of roughhewn granite existed.
