Happy 4th of July

I hope everyone has a happy and safe 4th of July.  Perhaps today is a good day to show a few photos from the Black Hills in South Dakota.  This was one of many places we visited on our recent road trip.  I'll start with .Mt. Rushmore, with the stunning carvings of four of our presidents.  Adjectives don't adequately describe it, I don't think.  It is awe-inspiring, and a grand tribute to not only the four presidents, but to our country in general, I think.  The second photo is of DH and I.

We saw probably 20 or so of the burros standing in the road.  They would come right up to the car window looking looking for food handouts.  Pretty darn cute!
 We saw a few hundred buffalo.  They are simply massive!  It's hard to believe that people get out of their cars to take photos.  The rangers say that every year someone gets gored or otherwise injured by one of them.  The little calves are cute.  It's hard to imagine that something that small will grow so much.
