Mount Rushmore National Memorial is a massive sculpture carved into Mount Rushmore in the Black Hills region of South Dakota. Each of the faces are as much as 60 feet high, and they depict U.S. presidents George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln. Stunning!
The memorial took 14 years to complete. We saw it in just three days.
