Any body shoot Mt. Rushmore at night? Is the park open that late?

I was there a long time ago and remembered being there pretty late, but I don't remember the exact time. I did a quick search and found this:

"Mt. Rushmore is open every day of the year except Christmas. The grounds may be entered anytime between 5 a.m. and midnight, however viewing at the visitor center is generally from sunrise to about 10 p.m. No overnight camping is permitted within the Mt. Rushmore boundary. Facilities within Mt Rushmore have various hours depending on the season and some are completely closed in winter."

That sounds about right from what I remember.

Night shots are possible since there are spotlights on the monument.

They do a lighting ceremony every night just after sunset, so that can make for some good shots (http://www.nps.gov/mor​u/planyourvisit/hours.​htm (external link)). I'd share a picture, but I've only been there that late once, and I was with a friend, so just ended up taking a couple snapshots.

If you're going to be in the area, Crazy Horse, which isn't very far away, also does laser light shows on occasion, so you may want to look into that as well.

Mt. Rushmore at night

Oh, this brings back memories of North by Northwest!
A "must see" if you actually are going to go there at night.


"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".
