kinda cool to think that these roads are isolated all winter! wouldn't it be fun to take a snowmobile through them? Or an ATV?

we climbed up a rock wall to a lookout area on top of the tunnel for an absolutely stunning view of Mt. Rushmore and the Black Hills... there were only two other people who climbed up here

and they took our picture for us!
