THIS RAFFLE IS NOW OVER, BUT COME BACK TO MY SITE THE BEGINNING OF OCTOBER. I WILL BE DOING ANOTHER RAFFLE FROM OUR TRIP TO NYC. THANKS FOR READING!
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 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.
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. Now for the fun part, how to win the free Mt. Rushmore souvenir. There are two way to be entered into the raffle. The first way is to sign up to receive emails when I submit a new post. I usually post new articles 2 or 3 a week and promise not to flood your email box. 🙂 To become a follower of our blog, click on the follow button below in the right hand corner. input your email address, then check email and confirm. For everyone who does sign up by June 30th their name will be submitted twice into the raffle. The second way to enter is to simply submit a comment and reply to a comment on this post. That’s it. Everyone who does this, will have their name submitted once into the raffle. This also needs to be done by June 30th . Some suggestions for comments would be:
- Sharing memories from on your trip to Mt. Rushmore
- What you would like to see in Mt. Rushmore
- Suggestions on places to see and things to do in the area would also be nice to read
- If you haven’t been there but want me to check out something for you, please post those comments as well.
Once we return, I will randomly select a winner. Again you have until June 30th to submit your comments. I thought it would be a great way for everyone to share their fun memories. I look forward to reading all your comments. – Gene and Samantha ♥
