4th of July!

Have a great 4th of July. The 30,000 folks watching the fireworks at Mount Rushmore last night got an early start on the holiday.

Usually the fireworks at Mount Rushmore, set in a ponderosa pine forest, start a few small fires, sometimes as many at 10 to 15, which are put out by the dozens of firefighters staged around the monument. But it has been a wet early summer and the heavy growth of grass has not cured yet... it's pretty green right now, so it is unlikely that any fires would have any potential.
