The Black Hills are a mountain range in western South Dakota and eastern Wyoming. While it is probably most famous as the site of Mount Rushmore, there are some other remarkable places which I mention below. A trip to this beautiful region is something that everyone should experience at least once.
One of the most iconic places in the United States, Mt Rushmore was carved between 1927 and 1941. The mountain features the faces of four U.S. presidents (George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, and Abe Lincoln) which were chosen to represent U.S. history up to that point. The initial design called for presidents to be depicted from head to waist (you can see part of George Washington's collar) but funding ran out before that ambitious design could be completed.
