This was actually our second time visiting Mt. Rushmore. The first time however was not a good experience. It was November, cold, and dusk. Hannah was about 3 months old, we were there for a total of 5 minutes! This time it was HOT! We have all four kids with us and it was crowded. We went hiking around the Presidents Trail. It didn't seem like a bad idea at the time except for on the way back there were about a million stairs, which I had to carry Phoebe the whole time! Yowza! Didn't get too many pictures because I was sweating too much and about to die!
