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 Louisiana! 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.
