Mount Rushmore. What can I say? As a Canadian it’s never really been high on my list of must see places. I’ll be honest, we only went because it was on the way to New York.
But I don’t mind admitting that it was a lot more impressive and a lot less tacky than I imagined. It’s truly is an amazing achievement, one that I was keenly aware would be completely impossible in today’s political climate. Can you even imagine any artist wanting to honour a modern politician with so much as a sketch on the back of a napkin?
