For spotting wildlife, we saw more wildlife in this park than all of our locations in Colorado. We encountered deer, antelope, and prairie dogs throughout the park.

Arrived Mt Rushmore 6 pm and spent two hours there. The entrance to the memorial is breath taking. It has changed quite a bit since Kathy first visited Mt Rushmore at age four. There is a striking view of the four presidents as you walk up a stoned ...
