One thing we have discovered about Roadtirement is that timing is sometimes everything. We hit perfect timing when we visited Mt. Rushmore. We were there on a Sunday in late August a week before Labor Day. The traffic was minimal, and the vehicle pull off on Route 244 where you can see George Washington’s face in profile was nearly void of cars.
Sure there were some vehicles that pulled in to the turn off, but very few stayed for any length of time. It seemed like we had that beautiful slice of Mt. Rushmore all to ourselves.
