6 famous faces: two have yet to be carved at Mt. Rushmore

I’ve lived in South Dakota for a year and a half and have never seen Mount Rushmore. It took the recent visit of my college friend Dorothy for me to take the 30 minute drive to the famous faces.

Wow! The monument is more breathtaking in person; the television, the movies, the postcards and pictures don’t do it any justice. It was almost hard to pry your eyes off Lincoln, Jefferson, Monroe and Roosevelt’s intricately carved faces. It’s amazing that people were able to create such beautiful art in the middle of the Black Hills National Forest.
