We have yet to do the Iron Mountain Road located between Keystone and Hwy 36. Three more tunnels on that route.
Bighorn Sheep Ewes along the Needles Highway.
This tunnel is 8’ 4” wide. I remember 25 years ago driving the Needles Highway with one of our Class Cs and going through the tunnels. This one we pulled the mirrors in to do so.
Jim and Sherry’s little Honda CRV going through the same tunnel.
Scenery along Needles Highway. There are large sections of pine forest that are dying due to an insect infestation. This is a problem throughout the West.
We manage to bump into fellow Wisconsinites everywhere.
Sylvan Lake on the Needles Highway.
A wedding on the shores of Sylvan Lake.
Near the gift shop and restaurant.
Jim and Sherry walking through the state flags.
Restaurant at Rushmore
IMHO Mt. Rushmore is way too commercialized. Everything is over the top and detracts from the mountain.
