we stopped at an ice cream place called fjord's that i have wanted to go to since i saw it featured on a foodnetwork show. they make all of their ice cream from scratch. i tried the honey sunflower flavor and it was so good! i never imagined that i would actually be able to visit mount rushmore and this ice cream store, but somehow we made it here. it was a really busy and fast weekend, but it was worth it.
when we got into town where mount rushmore is located it was pouring rain, so we stopped to check it out and came back the next morning to see it again. it is so cool! south dakota, at least the part we were in (along the western border) is absolutely gorgeous. it's very green with hills and mountains, and a lot of wildlife.
