You’ve probably heard the story of our first visit to Mount Rushmore National Memorial. We drove in, rushed out to the viewing platform, snapped about a dozen excellent photos of the four presidents using a variety of lenses on a 35mm SLR camera then packed up the gear, and hurried off to the next stop on our Trip Tik. For many years we have wanted to come “Back to the Fork” and take our time at Mount Rushmore. These days there is much more to see and do. We hiked the Presidential Trail, visited the sculptor’s studio, and learned much more about the history and the process that brought this great work of art into being. After about a four hour visit which included lunch at a table looking out at the heads, we drove the Iron Mountain Road and the Needles Highway past Sylvan Lake seeing incredible scenery and wildlife, back to our campsite. In Hill City we enjoyed Moose Drool ale and a mediocre meal before collapsing into bed.

All Because of an Eclipse

All Because of an Eclipse

It was a fabulous opportunity to not only view the 2024 Solar Eclipse from within the path of totality but also to enjoy a five day weekend with friends from the T@B trailer community at Ohio’s East Harbor State Park on the shore of Lake Erie.
