Fort Hays is where Dances With Wolves was filmed. We had fun walking the movie sets.
After we browsed the film set, we continued down the boardwalk and made visits to many other turn-of-the-century workshops like the Tin Shop, Rope Shop, Blacksmith Shop, Sawmill, Penny Press and the Knife shop.
Big brother got on with her and she was all smiles!
She's so funny with him. She sure loves her big brother!
Then she didn't want to get off the pony and threw a fit on the floor.
But not without trying out a few tomahawks the knife man just got finished making...
We put the screaming birthday girl down for a nap as we drove up to Mount Rushmore!
"Sorry, cash only."
What decade are we in? Cash only? We didn't have cash (we spent all our cash on buffalo burgers and pony rides)and we couldn't just turn this rig around and drive allllllllll the way down the mountain!
Enough about parking. Let's get on to the monument itself....
The faces were all lit up...
After we thanked these brave men for serving!
After singing Happy Birthday in the Mount Rushmore parking lot we headed down the mountain.
because we liked our new friends the Lundy5 so much ,
we followed them and camped with them and probably annoyed them a little too! ha!
