Last year, I traveled to awe inspiring Mt Rushmore in South Dakota, which is a fabulous area to visit (including the nearby Crazy Horse Memorial, Badlands National Park and the SD Air and Space Museum). This year, the Independence Day fireworks celebration should be spectacular.
Savor your journeys… real, imagined or virtual, near or far.
George Washington: Labor to keep alive in your breast that little spark of celestial fire called conscience ~ Human happiness and moral duty are inseparably connected ~ Strive not with your superiors in argument, but always submit your judgment to others with modesty ~ Perseverance and spirit have done wonders in all ages.
Thomas Jefferson: Do you want to know who you are? Don’t ask. Act! Action will delineate and define you ~ Honesty is the first chapter of the book wisdom ~ The most valuable of all talents is that of never using two words when one will do ~ On matters of style, swim with the current, on matters of principle, stand like a rock.
Theodore Roosevelt: Do what you can, with what you have, where you are ~ Believe you can and you’re halfway there ~ People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care ~ Knowing what’s right doesn’t mean much unless you do what’s right.
Abraham Lincoln: I will prepare and some day my chance will come ~ And in the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years ~ Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed, is more important than any other one thing ~ You cannot escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today.

Just great – really enjoyed. One of the places I always wanted to visit.
Yes, it’s a spectacular place to visit… loved my road trip there as Montana also fabulous….
Thanks for this one. We were there last year also; however, the road of flags was all torn up so we could go no further than the shop area. It was still glorious. And, Crazy Horse was really amazing!
Thanks for sending these. Love, Donna
yes, it’s an amazing place. I also loved the Badlands .. quite a lot to see in the area. Looking forward to watching the fireworks from Mt Rushmore on Jul 3 … should be quite a show … Glad you enjoyed the post … Love, Eileen
