Well we certainly had a full day today!
Firstly we called into Bear Country USA, which is a drive through wildlife park. Just checkout all the animals that are in there:
And that was just in the drive through area - there was more!
They had a seperate area that you could walk through:
It was a fantastic park, great value for money.
Then we headed off to Mt Rushmore - Wow again!
We saw this on the way - thought of the Retro Roamers, so had to add a picture for them :)
|Very Sleek Looking! Dont know about comfort though!|
Here is Mt Rushmore:
|We added a few more heads!|
There were heaps of people there it is Summer Break now for school, they have 3 months off!
|They have a flag for every state|
After this we went to the "Crazy Horse Memorial"
It is a work in progress, it started in 1948 and the head is clearly visible:
This is what it is going to look like:
This is not a government funded project, they will not accept any government funding they rely on park admissions and donations.
There is a Indian Museum of North America on site with beautiful Jewellery and wares for sale:
|Dave was pretty impressed with the knives!|
Well that was our day. We will spent the next couple of days travelling so there won't be much to report for while.
