Fascinating “needles”

The Needles highway

On the road to Mt. Rushmore, awesome stone formations and mountains

narrow passage

This is in a curve, so neat!

Some of the old tunnels weren't wide enough for our truck so we avoided those roads.

Nice entrance


The pile of stone that was chipped off to form the faces.

A close look shows repairs and need for repairs.

A little chipped but still dignified

Val takes a dip in the lake.

Beautiful lake nearby

We couldn't resist stepping across this creek

Pronghorns getting some sun.

Amazing formations

looks like 3 elephants on top

Lot of chipmonks in this area, looking for handouts.
