Yellowstone & Mount Rushmore

As we continued on our vacation, we went through Great Falls, Montana and then onto Yellowstone National Park. It was quite the drive into the Park, lots of mountain ranges and it seemed like it took us a long time to get there. We finally made it to Old Faithful. Luckily, we only had to wait 10 minutes for Old Faithful to go off. Depending on when it went off last, it can be up to 2 hours between blasts.

Jakob and Levi waiting for Old Faithful. They were unsure as to what exactly they were waiting for, but they patiently sat there.

After we left Old Faithful, we stopped for a late picnic lunch by a lake in the park.

Our next stop was Mount Rushmore. Another long day of driving and we got to Mount Rushmore around 5pm. The sun was just to the left of the mountain, so it didn't make for the best pictures, but surprisingly we got some good ones anyway.
