Keystone, SD – Mount Rushmore and one humongous KOA

After another day flying through the “Deep Nothing”, where the highway is so straight that you don’t even need to hold onto the steering wheel the whole time, we arrived in Keystone SD. As the sun set, we first tried to visit the Crazy Horse monument, but discovered that a) it’s only partially completed and b) that they want $27.00 a carload to see it. So we drove on to Rushmore, catching “the shrine of american democracy” just as the sun went down.

We then drove the five miles down the mountain to what they claim is the second largest KOA Kampground in the continental US. Once again we were the Charlie Brown pop up in amongst the shiny hulking RVs with the wall sconces and the dual gas fireplaces. But the showers were fabulous and we settled in to a beer and a glass of wine, a great dinner and a little campfire to wrap things up.
Tomorrow, it’s another long day on the road heading towards Omaha Nebraska, land of corn, corn and soybeans.
