Rushmore – VSCO Film 03

As part of my trip to South Dakota to shoot a wedding, I spent a few days roaming the great prairies in hopes to see some new sites.  I battled some rain, snow and severe wind to get to the Black Hills of Western South Dakota.

My first site of Mount Rushmore was exhilarating.  It truly is a sight to be seen.  The most interesting part of all is learning how it was constructed.

I woke up at 330am the morning after the wedding and headed west for a 500 mile journey.  My first stop was the Missouri River.  I got there earlier than expected and took a nap in the back seat waiting for the sunrise over the river.  After that I headed straight for the Black Hills.  After several hours and nearly running out of gas, I made it to my second stop; Deadwood.  I was looking forward to this stop the most, as I love history and the Old West.  But Deadwood disappointed.  It is nothing but a tourist stop for gambling and gambling.  I moved on to LEAD, which is site of one of the largest gold mines in the world.  It is a massive crater carved into the Earth with tunnels traveling as deep as 8000 feet below the surface.  Unfortunately April is the end of the slow season so nothing was open, but it was still a great experience.

I then drove the length of the Black Hills, with stops at Rushmore and the Wildlife Sanctuary.  I spent the evening in Rapid City and headed for the Badlands the next morning.  See my Badlands post here.
