A Day for Monuments and Larger Than Life Men

A travel blog entry by mrighter


... that evening for a pyrotechnic show. It seemed like an exciting idea, but our travels took us farther north and returning for a show that would last until 11:00 PM didn't seem reasonable.
We drove the Needles road from Crazy Horse to Mt. Rushmore. Custer State Park charges 15.00 per vehicle to drive this route. We weren't expecting this. I guess it keeps the traffic down through this winding route with narrow roads and even narrower ...

We left our motel in Sheridan, WY at 6:25AM. Linda at the wheel on I90 headed East to Devils Tower. The sun was just coming up. We were driving into the sun all morning.
