As quick as a flash we’re out of Wyoming and into South Dakota – the ‘Mount Rushmore State’. So what better than to go and visit…
It was fun to see – and we watched a good film explaining the work that had gone into the sculpting (mainly using dynamite) and the symbolism (the ‘Shrine of Democracy’).
There’s now a smorgasbord of Samuelsons (I think that’s the correct collective noun) here to help – Mike’s parents Pat and Carl as well as son Zach arrived this afternoon so we’ve a great crew with us.
The run today was not quite as ‘easy’ as I had thought; pretty hilly with a decent amount of climb. But still 36 miles went by pretty quickly (7:20) and it was great to cross the state line into South Dakota.
