I've always wanted to go to Mount Rushmore. It must be awesome to see it in person!

Francesca Gray said...

Sounds like a fun vacation. Hope there will be lots of pics when you get back.

Mt. Rushmore. Never been there, but it looks like a really cool thing to see. Have a wonderful time.

I'd guest blog, but these days, I'm having trouble thinking of my own posts. :) I don't want to bore your readers.

Love the banner!

Man...I'm so jealous! I've not traveled out west much, and I've always wanted to. Take lots of pictures, k?

I'll guest post! And I'll keep it clean, I promise :-)

Stacy said...

Wow, I'm totally jealous - we would love to go to any of those places! Rushmore is high on our list, especially after seeing it recently on that new TV show, Treasure Hunters.

Have a wonderful trip, sounds like a blast! :)

EmilyRoseJewel said...

Wow, I hardly ever hear of people going to some of those spots. My husband grew up right outside of the Black Hills. Two years ago he took me back out there. It was the best trip, such great and not well known spots either. Loved Crazy Horse, that was so cool and great story behind it. Mt. Rushmore was amazing and felt very patriotic going. Custer State Park had a lot of wild life I had never seen-buffalo, big horn sheep, prairie dogs--from there we drove through the Needles Highway. Awesome creation of God, scenic drives were wonderful. We stayed in Deadwood one night, I will say this--a lot of older people gambling is what I got out of it. We did eat at a lovely old hotel with great food, although the big ticket there is Kevin Costner's restaurant for a $50 steak dinner (a little overpriced for us). When do you go? I should send you some pictures. Enjoy! My list is up!

Mama Duck said...

Excellent, have fun!!

EmilyRoseJewel said...

Oh, Devils Tower is also very near some of those places, that was a great site to see as well. If you aren't familiar this is a massive granite rock mountain in the middle of nowhere seen in Close Encounters of the Last Kind.

~Krystyn~ said...

Sounds like a very busy and FUN vacation!! Enjoy!!

Finn said...

Takes lots of pictures!

My TT is up!

Kelly said...

Holy crap!
You have so much to do!!!!!
I look forward to the pics!

Happy Thursday!

Maribeth said...

I loved Mount Rushmore!!! We stayed a few extra days just so I could look at it. Awesome!
