Okay, so a few years back an artist decided to carve some faces in to the mountain.

HOWEVER, take the time to understand why *these* men were chosen to adorn this mountain. It really is the early history of our country, the perils it faced, and its ascension to the world stage. From the Revolutionary War, through the expansion of the Louisiana Purchase, surviving the Civil War, and to the Great White Fleet announcing our presence to the world. These men were giants in our nation's coming of age. As awesome as this monument is, it does not do justice to the history it represents.

I am an American. I fly the flag outside my home. And I am always humbled every time I visit Mt. Rushmore.

To the OP... Lots of fun stuff to see and do in the Black Hills. Enjoy it!! However, I suggest you take some time to make sure the grandkids understand what Mt. Rushmore represents and that is is not just some random tourist attraction. They are at an impressionable age, and this is a great learning opportunity.

Eric good post, I had my 11 year old GS read the Declaration Of Independence and he could not understand why I got emotional when he read "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." When I explained to him that we had the liberty to purse happiness with our 3 month trip out west and that in many countries people don't have that same freedom he understood better.
