Moonset over Mt. Rushmore
Some say October is one of the best times to visit the Black Hills. The weather is usually nice (October, 2013, being a notable exception) and you can take pictures like this.
The Harvest Moons of October and November present a striking view as they set behind Mt. Rushmore shortly after sunrise. This photo was taken about 6:40 a.m. on October 9, 2014. A day earlier there was a lunar eclipse over Mt. Rushmore but clouds prevented a good picture. No problem, a similar picture will be available in about 500 years if it’s not cloudy.
