Pinterest Travelfest -- Welcome to South Dakota!


Source: travelsd.com via Carol on Pinterest


One of the places in the United States that I am most eager to see is Mount Rushmore in the Black Hills of South Dakota. The faces of the American presidents Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt are carved in the granite mountain. This monument captured my interest somewhere in elementary school and has held it for at least the last sixty years. I felt the same way about the Grand Canyon and had the good fortune to visit there six years ago and enjoyed it immensely. Are there any places that are on your dream list in the United States? I think Mount Rushmore and Yellowstone National Park are at the top of mine.

Wishes for a sweet Friday!

Here I really thought you were at the Grand Canyon. I guess I'm the best armchair traveler I know. I really don't travel much at all except through the eyes of others. Hope your Friday is a FANTASTIC one!

I guess the one site I'd like to visit is the Statue of Liberty--of course, I'd get to take in all the sights getting there!

I read your post to Mr. Teacherfish because I am always telling him I want to see Mt. Rushmore. He suggests we do a blogger's trip there. Apparently he is not interested in going. Anyone else think its a good idea?

It's been a few years since I was in the Black Hills but oh it was wonderful. I have to go back and see Crazy Horse.

I was fortunate enough to see Mount Rushmore, the Badlands, Rocky Mountain NP, Yellowstone and Yosemite and The Grand Tetons--as you can see I love National Parks and since we are often out west to visit family we try to spend some time traveling to a park. There are many in Utah I'd love to see and Glacier NP in Montana --hopefully someday I'll will!

Have a good week!

If you make it back to this area you should definitely make time for Rapid City, it has so much to offer: from food, accommodations to attractions!
