Mount Rushmore

On a 5,000-mile road trip through 14 states with our kids, we stopped at several national parks and monuments, including Mount Rushmore. As a storm approached, we saw some activity above Mr. Lincoln: a small group with rappelling gear. But before they could lower themselves, the storm drove them off the crest to safety.
