Black Hills of South Dakota

Wyoming doesn't have sales tax
We left interstate 90 for awhile today, dipped down through Thunder Basin, Osage, Newcastle and Custer, sneaking up on the Mount Rushmore National Monument from the south.

The Park Service lady said they have about three million visitors a year. Presidents Washington, Roosevelt and Lincoln look pretty good. I didn’t recognize Jefferson.
The monument is smaller than I expected, I am surprised it hasn’t been stolen.

I stumbled off the track to success in 1968, started chasing shadows that summer. Since then, In addition to farm-laborer and newspaper photographer my occupational incarnations include dishwasher, janitor, retail photo clerk, plumber, HVAC repairman, auto mechanic, CAT scan technologist, computer worker and politico (whatever it takes to buy a camera.) I am on the road to understanding black and white photography.

  1. Very interesting. I had no idea that Rushmore is being menaced by a giant baby!

  2. Didn’t you find the hills themselves more interesting than the faces? I did.

  3. yah. this was the only time on the trip we stopped for a photo. Maybe aliens would have been around devil’s tower. glad to have seen Rushmore, but I wish I’d used my one stop for something else…
