We decided to take a hike along one of the trails in the park. There were conflicting signs as to whether the path was 2.3 or 3 miles but the suggested time was 2-3 hours (of course, we read that after we returned). The hiking difficulty was listed as moderate. We decided to give it a try and finished in about 2 hours. Both of us realized that we were hiking at a higher elevation than we are used to at home. Below are some of the pictures Jim took as we hiked along.
We drove to Mt. Rushmore along the Needles Highway. There were 4 single lane tunnels and absolutely beautiful vistas all the way north.
Jim made sure he found the perfect spot to get the right angle for his pictures.
