Todd with the Presidents

This morning we set out early to Mt. Rushmore. We ate breakfast in a dining room overlooking the Presidents. We spent a good hour and a half taking pictures and wandering about. When we got out of the Jeep, our cry was "Let's shoot some film!" Rushmore is a great place to take pictures: lots of angles, good paths, and the light on the faces is always changing. I bought a book on the carver, Gutzon Borglum. I think he's interesting for doing both Rushmore and Stone Mountain. Unfortunately, he has a troubling history with anti-Semitism and the KKK. The book should prove interesting.
