Day 1: Pine Ridge Reservation & Re-Memeber 6/12/14

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The first day of our experience went extremely well. Everyone arrived safely into South Dakota and we began our day by visiting Cabela’s flagship store near Rapid City to have lunch and pick up that item we may have forgotten. We traveled south to Keystone to visit Mount Rushmore. What a spectacular national monument. After taking lost of pictures, we walked the presidential trail and learned a great deal more about the project and the presidents. We headed back into Keystone for dinner and made our way back to Mt. Rushmore for the evening ceremony. We ended the day with a group reflection and expression of gratitudes. All the students welcomed each other and immediately felt involved and included. Great first day!
