My Best Shot

My husband and I live in Ellicott City and we took a Wild West trip in May through eight Midwestern states. Of course, seeing the incredible sight of Mount Rushmore was one of the highlights. To walk beneath it and read the history was very fascinating. President Lincoln's nose is 17 feet long - that's the size of the Statue of Liberty's entire head. We also found other interesting places to visit along our trek. On the campus of Wichita State University we discovered the original Pizza Hut, which was founded by two students who were attending the university. Needless to say, they are millionaires now.
