This is the view from our room balcony. We could actually see George from there.
This is what you see walking up to the mountain. Flags and posts from all the states.
It was such a great visit because the air was cold but not freezing and there were some people there but not crowded. The best part was that the book store was open (hehe). FYI - thoughts off of the top of my head: It took approx. 14 years for this Art to be created. 90 percent was done by dynamite. The rest (the details) were carved and chistled by many workers. The creator died before the project was complete and his son finished his fathers dream.
other for awhile then he resumed eating the earth and we continued on our journey.
