“I didn’t know Mount Rushmore was in South Dakota”

Our next stop was Spearfish, South Dakota and that we were going to Mount Rushmore the following day. To be honest, I never really realized that Mount Rushmore was in South Dakota. I didn’t really know where it was, but I figured it was somewhere in California or Nevada, literally just not South Dakota.

We also got to check out Custer State Park (where we actually saw a live buffalo on the road) and the Needles Highway comprised of needle-like rock formations pictured below.
