Mount Rushmore (by Eli)

We went to Mount Rushmore. I didn’t know what it was before we got there. I have heard the name “Mount Rushmore” before, but I didn’t know what it was. I knew that big-president-statue-faces-thing existed because I’d seen pictures of it, but I didn’t know that it was called Mount Rushmore. When we got there and I saw it, I thought “Wow!” I was wondering if you could actually go up there and touch it. We got there and there were all these benches going down to a big stage and when you look up, there it was. These huge faces of Jefferson, Washington, Lincoln, and Roosevelt.  I thought it was – like maybe one of the faces was like 6 feet, but I found out later, when I saw a picture of the guy carving it, the nose itself was bigger than a full grown man! It was really super cool.
