The photo caption reads: Cones are shown along the road to Mount Rushmore. The National Parks Service placed the cones there to prevent viewers from stopping on the side of the road to view the monument.

People pulling to the side of the road to view Mt. Rushmore was costing the government zero dollars a year, so naturally no funding for this lack of expense due to the shutdown forced the Obama administration to order this move.

If somebody would start the rumor that work has begun to put Obama’s likeness on the monument those cones would have disappeared in five minutes.
