You can see Mount Rushmore between Mark and Kurt in the above picture if you click on the image to see the enlargement. We had a pleasant day meandering about little towns. We managed to have some decent German food and take in a few shops and museums. We arrived back in Gillette just before the sun began to set.
Later that evening, we headed back to the Cam-Plex for one last time to watch the 2 hour plus closing ceremony fireworks extravaganza. There were several segments before the choreographed shows: the burning of a 4 million firecracker super string, a 21 gun salute for deceased members (those salutes shake you to the very core - they're awesome) and special shells made by convention members. That was all just a warm up for the 45 minutes of solid fireworks that followed.
