I really really wanted to have these photos posted for you on July 4. For some reason, Thoughtful Husband’s laptop couldn’t upload photos to the internet from the road, though, so I couldn’t. I know that Independence Day is now long past, but the fireworks show at Mt. Rushmore was one of the high points of our trip. This show is one of the biggest fireworks shows I’ve ever seen. Fireworks are illegal for individuals in the Bay Area, though there are a few public fireworks shows. None of them can hold a candle (pardon the pun) to grand spectacle of the show at Mt. Rushmore.
On July 3, we visited Mt. Rushmore in South Dakota. On the night of July 3, Mt. Rushmore hosts the fireworks show. About 30,000 people attended, but the park was well-organized and able to accommodate the huge crowd. The traffic getting there and back to our campground after was horrible, but that’s not the part we’ll remember a few years from now. We’ll likely remember the beautiful setting and this:
Happy Independence Day! Better late than never. 🙂
