|We made it!|
This is not my first visit to the venerable sculpture. Our family visited here when I was about 10 or 11 but we never saw the monument The entire mountain, and everything else, was completely obscured by fog. My mother thought it was hilarious.
So you can imagine how I felt when the skies were foggy this morning. But later in the morning,
the mist blew off and all 4 Presidents were visible. I imagined my mother smiling. The sun even shone for about an hour.
I walked the trail that winds below the mountain enjoying the beautiful woods.
And the goat
What makes the Black Hills black? The ponderosa pine's dark bark.

|One last peek from the GDB|
So it comes in threes?
Well, along with my ailing transmission, I now have a broken latch on my galley cabinet.
And on the way to Rushmore, I was behind an oil truck and this happened. Lower center bullseye.
Enough with the glitches, already! I'll call the insurance company tomorrow. It will give me something to do while the GDB is being tended to.
