Across the Uni(ted States of America)verse

mountreighley.jpgThe writers (and sometime Stranger contributors) Davida Marion and Kurt B. Reighley (nothing romantic) just drove from Seattle to New York City. They took photos of things. And photos of them taking photos of things.

four out of forty - not bad

would help to have one sexy shot

fat asses are not why Mt. Rushmore is famed

Any popular viewpoint has much richer photographic opportunities among the photographers than the viewpoint itself. Nobody needs or wants another pic of Mount Rushmore, but the attitudes and poses of the fat people photographing it are inexhaustible.

yech, during the surgis takeover of the blackhills?

for the price, it's a waste. it's really small, and pretty much same experience as a poster, only you get to hang out w/ fat annoying tourists. hoo-ah.

Sorry I didn't take pictures of my vacation with you guys in mind! Didn't know they were going to become accessible to the public.

Rushmore is pretty much a waste. The Badlands, however, are totally magnificent and worth the price.

@3 beat me to it a smart and concise way to explain that idea. National monuments are probably the best places to photograph "America."

It would be interesting to see a series of photos taken at national monuments disassociated from the monuments themselves, and see if/how the character of the people changes.

The thing about Rushmore that blows my mind is the Nuremberg Rally-esque viewing structure they built in front of it. It's very close to parody.

That and how fat those tourists are.

Traveler's tip: don't go.

fat fixation may be a mental disease

or, sexual fetish ... the latter migth yield some good times, hope you all act it out and get rid of some of the hostility

big fat tits are not just to look at, neither are big fat cocks just to comment about

get a big fat ass in you hands and mouth and as Dan now often says, thanks to God

I am looking out a window on C. Hill just getting aroused thinking about all that hot flesh on a hot day in a very hot inside room/bed - dripping, panting and getting all I need and want, over and over

fuck hempfest, I have a bong and a stash, why is that news?

don't have to drive to Dakota

I've been to Mr. Rushmore, and I found it very exciting, interesting and beautiful. Even though you know what it looks like from photographs, it's not the same as being there.

Fuck Mount Rushmore! Get me a pair of those hot, manly capri pants.

Super is cheaper than regular in South Dakota (and other midwestern states) because ethanol is subsidized.
