Mount Rushmore National Park

South Dakota's Black Hills provide the backdrop for Mount Rushmore. the world's greatest mountain carving. The sculpture features the faces of four American Presidents, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln. These 60-foot high faces, 500 feet up, look out over a forest of different species of trees in the clear western air. The Avenue of Flags leads from the concession building to the Grandview Terrace, where flags of 56 states and territories fly below the memorial. A half-mile walking trail offers spectacular views of the mountain sculpture.
