Heading East on our Land That We Love Tour we left Sheridan and traveled I-90 planning on taking the back way to Mount Rushmore via Highway 16. Before we got to Highway 16 we pulled off at Buffalo to mail some postcards and enjoyed the historic downtown main drag which I seem to have forgotten to take photos of. After Buffalo we stopped in Gillette, Wyoming to fill the tank with gas at $3.339.
The welcome to South Dakota sign seems to have been filled with bullet holes.
The rock formations started getting interesting as we came into Custer, South Dakota.
We saw the Crazy Horse Monument from the highway.
Next post will be an overload photo post of Mount Rushmore.
On Thursday September 23rd the miles driven were about 312 with a long stop at Rushmore. We were still in Mountain Time. We hit Mountain Time in Missoula, Montana. Wyoming is also in Mountain Time as is most of South Dakota.

I have always wanted to visit Mt Rushmore, great photos from South Dakota! Have a great day and a happy weekend!
..a place that I want to visit.
Full of bullet holes? Yee Haw! Talk about the Wild West.
Vee, it was fun to get the cowboy Wild West vibe. 🙂
Mt Rushmore is such an iconic and famous place. I’m glad you were able to visit this area.
“…stopped in Gillette, Wyoming to fill the tank with gas at $3.339.”
Is that good there? I think it is 2 something here, though I am not sure.
I love that you are visiting the national monuments! I had no idea Crazy Horse had a big, giant head monument too. Was it made by the makers of Mt. Rushmore?
Sandi, to my knowledge they are not finished with the Crazy Horse Monument as yet. Since Mt. Rushmore was completed in 1941, I would guess Crazy Horse is being worked on by different builders.
We went there in the 90’s and had a great time.
Love the church!!
One of those places I would love to visit. One day! You certainly travelled far and wide. B x
