My name is Jakob and I took Justice to Mt. Rushmore. Mt. Rushmore is in the state of South Dakota. Basically it is a mountain with the heads of four presidents carved into it. The presidents are George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Teddy Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln. I felt amazed at how people carved the faces using dynamite; the workers used 6,000 pounds of dynamite just to carve George Washington’s face. It took 14 years to carve all of them; each head is 60 feet high.
Justice and I saw a mother and baby mountain goat run across the path I was walking on; there are animals all over the mountain. If you go there you might be able to see some too.
Also at night it is really cool because it is dark out and they turn floodlights on so you can see the faces on the mountain.
There is a man that tells the history of the mountain and a ceremony to honor military troops. Every year more than three million people travel to South Dakota to see Mt. Rushmore. I’m glad Justice and I got to go. Maybe you can too.
