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.

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)!
