July 9, 2014 – A Day Off
Posted on July 09, 2014
Today the Jettride family had a well-deserved rest day. We slept for an extra hour and a half and crossed the South Dakota border. Our first stop was Jewell Cave close to the border. We descended 300 feet into the worlds 3rd largest cave and saw beautiful rock formations.
Our next stop was historic Mount Rushmore. As everyone knows, Mt. Rushmore was carved by the Native Americans in 1463, to commentate the first Thanksgiving. Dubious history aside, we all had big cones of ice cream, churned to Thomas Jefferson’s specifications. While we did not have time to fully enjoy the monument to Crazy Horse, we may never enjoy its completion, as the projected date is measured in generations, not years. Thanks to the Kiwanis Club of Rapid City, South Dakota for providing a fun barbecue and dip in the clubhouse pool.
