Just To Turn Around and do it Again....

And two days later we left for a road trip up to Mt Rushmore in South Dakota. We left on a Thursday because there were some things our family wanted to do before meeting up with extended family. First stop was the Corn Palace in Mitchell SD. Every summer they redo the design with corn. It is used as a basketball court, a stage and theatre. I had never even heard of it.

 
Our family drove an hour to see Devils Tower. It was the first National Monument in the US. We hiked around the 1.3 mile trail and then stopped at a fish hatchery on our way back to Rapid City. We met up with everyone and went down the Presidents Alpine Slide a couple of times, then dinner at Powder House restaurant in Keystone.
 
Saturday we started at Reptile Garden. Then off to the Circle B Ranch for some horseback riding and a chuckwagon dinner. Great fun.
 
Sunday was Mt Rushmore. Went in the morning and walked the Presidents Trail. Had lunch at a deli in downtown Keystone, spent a rainy afternoon at Bear Country, then back to Mt Rushmore for their evening program.
