""Mount Rushmore is a memorial that symbolizes America, and Americans should never lose sight of their cultural beginnings." -Gerard Baker, Superintendent."
"Mount Rushmore National Memorial is host to almost three million visitors a year from across the country and around the world. They come to marvel at the majestic beauty of the Black Hills and to learn about the ideals of democracy and freedom represented by the granite portraits of Washington, Jefferson, T. Roosevelt, and Lincoln. Over the decades, Mount Rushmore has grown in fame as a symbol of America -- a symbol of freedom and democracy and a hope for people from all cultures and backgrounds."
Because of time constraints I was not able to visit Mount Rushmore on my first leg Westward toward Yellowstone. On my Eastward return trip home I realized I had some extra time in the schedule, so a visit to the four honorable gentlemen was in order!
