10 Days Traveling Cross Country: Day 5

On Day 5 (July 20th) we left our hotel in West Yellowstone and headed East.  But not before taking a photo!
We drove East through the park and enjoyed a few final sights along the way.  
Driving out/in the Eastern side of the park you go through the famous Roosevelt Arch.
We left Montana & entered Wyoming. 

Then we  entered South Dakota.  This was a first for everybody on the trip!  We had to wake up Vante for this photo & she wasn't interested in posing for the camera, but we had fun. 

Vante, my sister Joy, & I.
 Some bozo had drawn mustaches on all the presidents.  It's funny, but not.

We drove for about 10 hours total that day.  At 8:30 p.m. we pulled up at Mt Rushmore!  
I had no idea how far away and high up the monument was until I saw it with my own eyes.  It really is impressive!
We were just in time for their 9 p.m. presentation.  We were so tired that we didn't get any photos of Vante at the park sign.  There is a parking garage where you park and walk into the park area.  We couldn't bring Vante into the park so she waited in the car.  But it was a nice, cool evening so she was fine and caught up on her beauty sleep.   

Two National Parks in 1 day & another on Day 6 (with photos)!
