During our cross-country road trip as we entered South Dakota, I realized Mount Rushmore was located somewhere along the freeway we were taking to Chicago. This realization only called for one thing, a detour. I had to take this chance to stop by this national monument and see the famous rock sculpture for myself!
I was beyond amazed to learn about the careful planning and skill it took to create this giant artwork. I always wondered how the artistic vision was translated into this huge production and it’s safe to say that my curiosity has been satisfied. We only stayed here for a short while but this detour made the overall trip all the more satisfying.
