Saturday Snapshot - September 27

To participate in Saturday Snapshot: post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken then leave a direct link to your post in the Mister Linky below. Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don’t post random photos that you find online.

Ah, Mt. Rushmore....it's kind of weird when you think about it....Dead white men carved into mountains deep in what was once Native American lands.  If that bothers you too much, go see the Crazy Horse monument--it isn't nearly as cool, but whatever.

That being said, I truly believe that all Americans should see Mt. Rushmore at least once in their lifetime.  This was time #2 for me (we stopped for a "look and get back in the car!" visit when I was younger).  Since my first visit, they built a new plaza and such, so it was kind of like coming back for the first time for me.

This picture was taken about 2 miles away with the zoom lens on my camera.
