Mount Rushmore?

On my way out west to begin my River Adventure last summer, I caught several sights I hadn’t seen before. (My first time in South Dakota!) On my visit to Mt. Rushmore, I discovered a rarely seen perspective – showing only Washington’s head – on an outer road outside the National Park.  Taken on July 25, 2017.  For the traditional view of Mt. Rushmore, click here.

BACK IN TIME

These US Army soldiers from the 1870s are available to take you on a tour of General George Custer’s home (upon whose porch they are standing), as it existed back before he left on his (in)famous last campaign.  The house still sits on the grounds of Fort Abraham Lincoln, across the Missouri River from Bismarck, ND.  Taken on August 12, 2016.  For two other pictures of Custer’s Home (originally shared back in March), see Custer 1 and/or Custer 2.

HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY !!

I’ve used this picture before, and somewhat recently.  But what better way to combine BOTH another River memory with a Memorial Day message of remembrance and best wishes?

Taken in Atchison, KS, at the Amelia Earhart Memorial Bridge over the Missouri River on August 30, 2016.  (Rollin On The River Collection)

Here is a 2-minute video of a 2013 light show on this bridge, posted by the KS Dept of Transportation.
