Also stopped at the Prairie Dog Town and saw about two dozen of them. Kathy was able to get some great pictures of one of them guarding his home. At one of the overlooks saw a herd of bison in the ...

There is nothing ...

    ... seeing several hundred by the end of the trip.

    After the scenic drive, I cruised up a scenic road winding through the mountains to Mount Rushmore. While I was still incredibly cold, Mount Rushmore was awesome. The sight itself is awe-inspiring, but I found the story and the history of the carving to be even more impressive. The man who carved Mount Rushmore, Gutzon Borglum, was also supposed to be the carver of Stone Mountain (also known as Stoney ...

    ... have yet to reveal themselves!

    Hill City provided a welcome lunch at the Hill City Cafe, shout out to them for what R described as the best chicken fried steak he has eaten in a very long time.
