Thomas Jefferson = Ice Cream Cone

We sort of did Wyoming and South Dakota things all in one go. One of the things I was adamant about when we began to plan a road trip was that I *had* to see Mount Rushmore. Why? I am strangely fascinated by it. Why? No idea.

But seriously, Mount Rushmore was totally one of my favorite things on this trip (I promise to stop claiming everything was my favorite...) The first important American History fact we learned was that Thomas Jefferson = Ice Cream Cone.

We never would have known this had we not visited Mount Rushmore. We just saved you a trip to the monument.

Also, state flags/pillars are a big deal there. Who knew?

Back in Wyoming, we also visited this amazing taxidermy emporium/bar and grill called the Occidental Saloon.
