Dick and Jean Bengtson, of Baton Rouge, spent two weeks in Wyoming and South Dakota recently, visiting various state and national parks, including the Mount Rushmore National Memorial. Finished in 1941 under the direction of Gutzon Borglum and his son Lincoln, the sculpture's roughly 60-foot-high granite faces depict U.S. presidents George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln.
