Badlands National Park - Keystone

First a drive through Fort Pierre National Grassland to see the prairie as it once was when only buffalo and the Sioux Indians occupied the land. Next we go to Badlands National Park, where 37 million years of wind and water have carved out a remarkable colourful sight. Then we head deep into the Black Hills and behold the granite faces of Mount Rushmore, a giant monument to four American presidents - Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln and Roosevelt.

  4. You are seeing some fabulous places on your tour. This is one I've yet to visit. Perhaps the Musician and I need to sign up for one of these tours!

  5. There were a lot of people at Keystone and Mt. Rushmore. I guess it has something to do with the 4th of July celebrations tomorrow, so people flock to patriotic venues. In a few minutes, we'll go to the Crazy Horse monument which is also a mountain carving of the Indian Chief "Crazy Horse". Google it, you'll find it very interesting.
