We made it to Mt. Rushmore in the early evening and enjoyed the walk around the boardwalk underneath the sculpture carved presidents. It was the perfect time to come to this memorial as most of the crowds seemed to have come during the day. It was quiet and the weather was pleasant as we got to view the presidents from different angles and perspectives from down below. After enjoying our walk we found some seats in the upper seating area and waited for the evening lighting ceremony. Mike and the boys went back towards the entrance of the park to buy us some ice cream to snack on while we waited. It was definitely worth waiting for the lighting ceremony. We loved being able to see the presidents lit up in the night sky. What a glorious place this was to visit.
