It is On The Road Friday and we are taking a trip to the evening ceremony at Mount Rushmore.
All is dark on top of Mount Rushmore.
The Big Dipper was just above the Presidents heads.
At 8:00 pm the ceremony began. We enjoyed a patriotic movie about America.
One of the park rangers gave us a quick history lesson about the importance of the four men carved into Mount Rushmore.
The lights come on! The faces of Mount Rushmore are a glow until 11:00pm.
It is beautiful.
After that the park ranger asks all military past and present to come forward to help take the American flag down for the evening.
Each and every military member states their name and branch.
It was so patriotic and I felt so happy for the military up on stage. I felt thankful as well for the sacrifice of their service.
It was a beautiful night.
Thank you for coming along with me for On The Road Friday!
