Climber on Mt. Rushmore, South Dakota

We were in a National Park Service training yesterday hearing about safety, guest relations, etc…when we were informed by park service that there was a climber on the memorial (cannot be seen in photo above), so of course, class was dismissed and we all went out to watch! :-)
A man was seen on George Washington’s left shoulder, and by the time we were informed, there were also four law enforcement rangers at the ready to apprehend. The man was taken into custody fairly quickly with what seemed like little resistance ~ he was fined and spent the night in jail. Apparently, there are usually a few climbers a year, and always with the same results. 
Believe it or not, this was one of the reasons we wanted to spend the season here – we’re interested in seeing all of the “things” that go on over the course of a season – in the front line & behind the scenes.
Easy and affordable - no matter where you are!
