Stone Faces

We awoke this morning, got a little juice at the supercharger and headed up into the Black Hills to see Mount Rushmore.  I’m not sure this is a site we would ever see if we weren’t forced through town on the supercharger route, so we were pretty excited at the opportunity.  The morning was gorgeous.  Blue skies and sunshine followed us into the Black Hills and the sites along the way were interesting.  I can’t imagine trekking up that mountain to carve out four faces for 40 years.  It was a peaceful morning at the memorial and we only passed another couple as we were heading out.

We had arrived to Rapid City with about 50 miles remaining last night before  After the small amount of juicing and then driving to/from Mount Rushmore, we eventually settling into the supercharger (located at a mall - we grabbed a Sub in the food court) for a just-barely-shy-of-full charge of 245 miles rated range.  Time to head south.
