Carhenge and Mt Rushmore
29 Jan – We got back on the road today as we need to be back in Marquette on 1 Feb. So today is the start of another great road tripping session. We drove back to Denver, Colorado where we started heading north. We entered the state Wyoming where our course changed east which took us to the town Alliance, Nebraska where we stayed for the night.
30 Jan – We got up nice and early this morning to go and look at the famous Nebraskan Carhenge. It was very cool and very arty. Carhenge is made from old cars which have been painted gray.
It is a very scenic and beautiful drive with some cute prairie dogs along the way.
...But this warning must be for summer time as Dan and I had the veiwing area all to ourselves for admiring the presidents at one point. A quick bit of info for the uninformed, Mt Rushmore is a memorial erected for Presidents; Washington, Jefferson, Rooseveldt and Lincoln.
It was unreal being there and looking at the great faces sculpted out of rock. We went for a walk on the memorial trail and got really close to the monument. When we left the memorial site we drove through a very cool western looking town and spent some time in the souvenir shops.
