Photos of National Monuments Under Construction (12pics)

 

Although the United States is a 'young' country (as far as countries are concerned) it does have many amazing National Monuments, such as Mount Rushmore near Keystone, South Dakota (above image). Visitors travel hundreds and thousands of miles to see them in person, boosting the local economy and adding memories to their photo albums... 
What they see is the finished product, conceived and designed decades ago for future generations to look upon in awe and inspiration...
