Unfortunately when we visited Mt. Rushmore, it was during the Sturgis Bike Rally. The entire area was overrun with motorcycles and people. It took about thirty minutes to get parked in the ramp and since it was so crowded and because of Covid, we decided to leave without going to the memorial.

We will go back sometime when it's not so crowded as the visitor center is interesting and a sight to see with the flags.
