Mount Rushmore, USA - 25th May 2013

By: sannah

Hi there,

last weekend was a long weekend here in the US - Monday was Memorial Day, a national holiday. sannah and friends decided to spend part of the weekend on the road in order to see the very very amazing nature of the Black Hills in South Dakota.

But to be honest, most visitors of the region don't only come for the nature, but mostly for the manmade additions to the landscape.


The most famous one are four heads of former presidents: from left to right George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln. The fifth head in the second row is mine!  :)

Their upper bodies have also have been engraved in the stone, but before this could have happened, the architect died. This is his statue:


And along the President's Trail with a lot of stairs, you could also learn a lot about the four presidents that had been chosen to be part of Mount Rushmore. Nils and I studied Thomas Jefferson very carefully!


Our journey continued, so stay tuned!

All the best,
