Day 15 – Leaving Rushmore

Washington's Profile

Washington’s Profile can be seen on the highway 244 to the west of the memorial – if you look.

Pops caught up with Mum, who wants to gaze at the memorial a bit longer- so he went through the museum as well, before we head up, and visit the gift shop, which as the mountain inscribed on every trinket imaginable – all in perfectly good taste mind you. One has to wonder when in a far distant time when these are forgotten ruins what some future archeologist will make of this complex and the remains found within.

After an ice cream, we drive onto the Crazy Horse Memorial – a response to Mount Rushmore that is partially realized. The admission fees are in place, $20 or head, as opposed to $11 at Rushmore for a pass for our car, good for all year.
