Win A Souvenir from our Upcoming Trip to Mt. Rushmore!



As I mentioned in my 15 Easy Ways to Save Gas on Your Summer Road Trip post earlier this month, we are getting ready to take a road trip to North Dakota to see the capitol building,  South Dakota to see Mt. Rushmore, Deadwood City, the state capitol and ending up in  Rapid City for the LWMS Annual Convention . We are also taking a side trip to see Devils Tower in Wyoming. I want to share the fun with you, my readers. Details on our raffle, and how to win a free Mt. Rushmore souvenir  are below. As soon as we return home I am going to do several posts about our trip, but wanted to give a little bit of history on a couple of things we plan to see and do on our trip. devils tower Devils Tower is an igneous intrusion or laccolith in the Bear Lodge Mountains (part of the Black Hills) near Hulett and Sundance in Crook County, northeastern Wyoming, above the Belle Fourche River. It rises dramatically 1,267 feet (386 m) above the surrounding terrain and the summit is 5,114 feet (1,559 m) above sea level. Devils Tower was the first declared United States National Monument, established on September 24, 1906, by President Theodore Roosevelt. The Monument’s boundary encloses an area of 1,347 acres. badlands

 Badlands National Park is a national park in southwestern South Dakota that protects 242,756 acres of sharply eroded buttes, pinnacles, and spires blended with the largest undisturbed mixed grass prairie in the United States.

rushmore 1 The Mount Rushmore National Memorial is a sculpture carved into the granite face of Mount Rushmore (Lakota Sioux name: Six Grandfathers) near Keystone, South Dakota, in the United States. Sculpted by Danish-American Gutzon Borglum and his son, Lincoln Borglum, Mount Rushmore features 60-foot (18 m) sculptures of the heads of four United States presidents: George Washington (1732–1799), Thomas Jefferson (1743–1826), Theodore Roosevelt (1858–1919), and Abraham Lincoln (1809–1865). The entire memorial covers 1,278.45 acres (2.00 sq mi; 5.17 km2) and is 5,725 feet (1,745 m) above sea level. rushmore 2 Now for the fun part, how to win the free Mt.
