Moment in Time #3 ~ South Dakota

4:06 p.m., June 17, 2004...Wounded Knee, South Dakota

Just outside the Wounded Knee Massacre site, on the way to Mt Rushmore.

Photos do not do this national memorial justice.  If you get the chance- go see Mt Rushmore- it is just awesome.

    Thank you for your kind remarks today:)
    I can't believe the size of the faces on Mt Rushmore when compared to the trees below. Love the peaceful Wounded Knee photo--so much sadness; so much history in that place :(
    Blessings,

    PS: I wanted to tell you my ancestors lived in Van Buren county, Arkansas.

  30. Hi Terri, thanks for your comment on my blog. I count my blessings every day so there's always lots to smile about.

    Mount Rushmore is an amazing art achievement. I know that I would be awe struck if I saw it in person. The story of the massacre at wounded knee is so sad. So much history there.
    Thanks for this.
