    ... Each day they climbed 700 stairs to the top of the mountain to punch-in on the time clock. Then 3/8 inch thick steel cables lowered them over the front of the 500 foot face of the mountain in a "bosun chair". Some of the workers admitted being uneasy with heights, but during the Depression, any job was a good job.The work was exciting, but dangerous. 90% of the mountain was carved using dynamite .

    ... a large iced coffee and we were ready to tackle Mount Rushmore. It was a bright, sunny day and the four presidents were clearly visible. A marked improvement over yesterday.
