Mount Rushmore

 

 

The Mount Rushmore National Memorial is a sculpture carved into the granite face of Mount Rushmore near Keystone, South Dakota, in the United States. Sculpted by Danish-American Gutzon Borglum and his son, Lincoln Borglum, Mount Rushmore features 60-foot sculptures of the heads of former United States presidents (in order from left to right) George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln. The entire memorial covers 1,278.45 acres and is 5,725 feet above sea level. The tallest mountain in the region is Harney Peak 7,242 feet .......

For me this was one of the greatest moments of my life standing at the foot of this awesome, have to be there in person, wonder of the world.......
