Sunday, July 9 – After our awesome hike and a little recovery time, we finished the day at Mount Rushmore where we met some new friends and fellow bloggers, Phyllis and Len, The Easts Head West, for the evening lighting ceremonies of the Presidents.

The ceremony was a very patriotic experience with a movie reviewing each of the four President's contribution to the country, the singing of America the Beautiful by a Ranger Deb, the Star Spangled Banner by the audience, and the Pledge of Allegiance. At the end of the program, all veterans and active servicemen and women were invited onto the stage where they received applause for their service to our country.


What a glorious site.

We did get to see the Custer sign at night. It looks just like we pictured it.

Pretty exciting huh?

Marsha meant to include this photo in the last blog about hiking to the Harney Peak. She wanted everyone to know how happy Paul was to reach the top!
