Mount Rushmore South Dakota!

Mount Rushmore July 2009!

More then just a road trip... More then just shooting national land marks... More then just site seeing... This road trip I have been seeking out and finding out more about me and more about the people here in the USA... It is more then I could have thought possible...

Mount Rushmore is more then just a few faces carved in Rocks.... it is spectacular..

Crazy Horse Monument by air (South Dakota)… July 2009

Six minutes by helicopter to Crazy Horse Mountain and after 60 years of building Crazy Horse Monument only from donations the question is will the owners ever finish it?

Erin’s first helicopter ride: We tried to rent a helicopter at Mount Rushmore but the wait for the helicopter was larger then the faces at Mount Rushmore. So only a few minutes drive away we decided to forgo the aerial shots at Mount Rushmore and drove a few minutes until we found the Crazy Horse Monument and another helicopter company so we jumped out of the car grabbed the dog and tide her up under the shade of a large tree and ran inside… no lines, no people….

Our own pilot and crazy horse in our view.. .
