Re: Gumbo's Pic of the Day, October 9, 2014: Mount Rushmore National Memorial, Pennington County, South Dakota

Ottoman ·
Hi Travel Luver I apologize for the lateness of this response. In answer to your question, I unfortunately did not see the monument lit up at night...my travel schedule didn't permit it. I too hope to go back to Mount Rushmore in the near future, primarily to see it lit up, for I have heard it is quite special, and the photos I have seen confirm that. When you make it back to Mount Rushmore, I hope you will share your adventures with us. Thanks for your feedback. I appreciate it. Take care,...

Amazing place! I saw it once as a boy but see I need to get back and study it more. Did you see it lite up at night? I seem to recall that's quite special.

What a wonderful cheeky chappy Theodore is ! Art "On the Go" must rank high up there - with Street Art. Anything - that's unexpected - that puts a smile on people's faces is priceless. We have "Snowdrop" on the River Mersey in Liverpool UK. Folks point and shout "Look" to their kids. Its great to see that look on their little faces - and some big faces too !!

Hi GarryRF Thanks for sharing your story and picture regarding THE MERSEY FERRY "SNOWDROP". That's quite the ship. I can imagine the look on peoples faces when the "Snowdrop" goes by. As for myself, I had to put my shades on so that I could carefully study your photo. I hope that one day I'll be in the River Mersey Liverpool area to be able to see the "Snowdrop" in person. I want to be one of those faces who get that "Look" after seeing something special, especially as you put it "Art On The...

Re: Step Back in Time: Mesa Verde National Park, Colorado

Amateuremigrant ·
I remember reading with fascination about this in a couple of articles by Barry Lopez. It was saddening to hear of the wanton damage done on the past, but equally gladdening (?) to learn that intact granaries and other structures are still in existence but very closely guarded. Such archaeological evidence is a delight and tells us a lot about these early inhabitants ❤️
