I visited this national memorial about 5 years ago with my dad. Unfortunately, he recently passed away. However, we had a most amazing and memorable time on our visit. My dad always wanted to visit Mount Rushmore and was on his list of things to do. We visited the memorial, Boot Hill Cemetery and the small town of Deadwood, where we gambled at the casino owned by Kevin Costner.
On the way to Deadwood from Mount Rushmore, it was snowing extremely hard. We were hungry and cold an decided to eat. On the side of the road was this small, roadside eatery. There we had the great fortune of eating the worlds tasty cheeseburger. I took a picture of this roadside diner, but have lost it and would be grateful if someone could furnish its name and maybe a photo! It was a small trailer, on the side of the two lane highway located about midway between Deadwood and Mount Rushmore.
Upon our departure, we were almost snowed in at our small Inn at Mt Rushmore, but finally the snow subsided and we went home, traveling back with vivid memories, that will stay with me forever. JFM, California
