Epic Road Trip-Day 10 1/2

After we finished at Bear Country USA we decided to drive to Mt. Rushmore. This really is an awe inspiring place. It's just beautiful country and when you get your first glimpse of Mt. Rushmore, it's breathtaking.




We really enjoyed this. We stayed for a couple of hours and ate lunch with a great view of Mt. Rushmore.
We got on the road again and went back to Rapid City to explore the School of Mines Museum. I think the kids really enjoyed this.




After we finished at the museum we went back to the hotel, got in our swim suits and went to the pool. It was a good sized pool with a fun water slide for the kids. We also ordered pizza to be delivered to the pool for dinner. They had nice tables with umbrellas (even though it was indoors) to eat our dinner. We stayed down there for a couple of hours and then went back to get ready for bed and more fun tomorrow.

Your trip is great. It brings to mind a similar one I took with my mom in 1963 when I was 17. Your family will never forget all the wonderful sights. Are you going to the Great Lakes? Niagara Falls?

I love Mt. Rushmore! When we lived in South Dakota I remember we went there quite a few times, especially when we had out of town guests visiting us.

Found memories! Connor and Harper would have enjoyed the museum with the dinosaur as they are really into them at the moment.
