Keystone, South Dakota
We made it to Keystone, which is about as close as you can get to Mt. Rushmore, got checked into our hotel and are ready to go see the monument. Let me start off by saying that Keystone is an absolutely nutty town. We pulled in and there was no short of a billion people and about that many things to do. I guess I expected there to be some stuff but not a sensory overload of things. Kind of feels wrong to have this huge tourist trap of a city, breaking up the beauty of the Black Hills, at a monument to our great presidents. City reminding me a lot of Branson Missouri, really not my kind of place. At least our hotel room is nice and we don't have far to drive to see the monument.
