»Mount Rushmore National Monument

This world-famous mountain carving by sculptor Gutzon Borglum is one of the United State's most-beloved natural wonders. The 60-foot-tall faces of four of America's greatest presidents: George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Teddy Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln, look down from their 500-foot mountaintop above the beautiful forests of the Black Hills. While Borglum had originally envisioned the sculpture to include the entire body of each president, budgetary and time concerns forced the sculptor to simply include the heads. The monument has met some controversy due to its location in Lakota land established during the Trety of Fort Laramie. The Avenue of Flags, sculptor's studio and Grandview Terrace, are great vantage points for taking in this marvel.
