We were all looking forward to arriving in Tucson and just relaxing. We had plans to just sit by the pool and veg basically for the two weeks over Christmas and New Years.

NOLA, N-O-L-A, NOLA

We stayed at the Bayou Segnette State Park, it’s a really nice and quiet state park and only  about a 20 minute drive to downtown and the French Quarter.

The first day we went to go check out Mount Rushmore in the morning and The Crazy Horse Memorial in the afternoon.  Mount Rushmore was pretty phenomenal, you see it so much in movies but to actually be standing there staring up at the mountain was something else.
