Since Matt had a three day weekend, we decided to go on a mini-road trip to Mt Rushmore and to see as many random roadside attractions as possible. Mission complete!
In Loveland, Colorado we found the Statue of Liberty and a giant chair.
Cell tower disguised as a buffalo.
The story of Emperor the Penguin is a depressing one. He lives in the lobby of a hotel in Cheyenne, Wyoming.
In Douglas, Wyoming we tracked down the world’s largest jackalope! (They’re the self-proclaimed Jackalope Capital of the World.)
In Rapid City, South Dakota we came across another Statue of Liberty!
Unfortunately, Dinosaur Park had too many stairs for me to deal with given the pain I was already in.
South Dakota truly loves their buffalos.
Check out them gams!
Me at every party ever.
I have no idea if this height disparity was accurate…
The stuff of nightmares.
Then you had all the unimportant Presidents treated like disembodied heads in washing machines.
4th of July at Mt Rushmore...how much more grossly patriotic can you get!?
The beginning of the Chief Crazy Horse memorial.
But what I was most excited for on this trip?
Bizarre sculpture made of bikes in Pringle, South Dakota.
Driving down a dirt road for 10 miles led us to the memorial for a madam who was murdered in 1879.
I took way too many pictures of the sky on this trip but, really, can you blame me?
