Mount Rushmore

We went to the evening show at Mount Rushmore.

We'd seen it during the day before, and we weren't sure we wanted to take the time this trip to see it again. But we did have an evening available, and we'd heard that the evening show was neat.

A park ranger gave a speech about explaining what America is like to people in Africa when she was in the Peace Corps. And they showed a movie about Mount Rushmore and the presidents on it. Then they lit the monument. (And, no, our camera doesn't take good pictures in low light!)

Then a visiting Boy Scout troop lowered and folded the flag. And they invited the veterans in the audience to come up and be recognized.

It was neat to be there during the week of the 4th of July with people from all over America.
