Mt. Rushmore is a don’t miss. But we did. Well, sort of.
You see, the park is free… you simply have to pay $11 to park… not TO the park, but to a concessioner. So, to visit a National monument paid for with tax dollars, you have to also pay some stupid troll controlling the “bridge.” We wouldn’t mind paying the Park for entry of parking, but paying a concessioner means that money does not support the Park. We don’t support that model and voted with our feet.
So, we viewed Mt. Rushmore from other vantage points… no less for wear, and enjoyed viewing a National treasure our own way. – Dan
