This was interesting - the original sculpture plan was to have torsos in addition to the portraits, but faults in the granite made this unworkable.

Day 10 - Mount Rushmore
I kind of went into this day thinking Mt. Rushmore would be a quick visit - I mean, what is there to do but look at 4 heads carved into a mountain? And on first viewing (the night before), I also have to say I was a little surprised at the size -- as Herbert said, "hmmm...it's a little more petite than I expected." I don't know what I was thinking - I guess I expected HUGE, but after spending the better part of a day going on a hike, checking out the displays and museums, I really enjoyed this experience.
