Clinton Rock - Behind Mount Rushmore

Leaving Hill City KOA and going to Mount Rushmore on hwy 244, just past Wrinkled Rock and Horse Thief Lake, you can't help but notice -- clustered in a rock formation -- Slick Wille's willie. Too embarrassing to place up front with the other great Presidents of our country.

[Gustavo R. Garcia, 04/30/2004]

Yea, maybe. And off to the left -- isn't that most of Prof. Zaius from the original Planet of the Apes?
