Road Trip!!!!

About 10 minutes away from Mount Rushmore is the Crazy Horse Memorial. It's the World's Largest Sculpture. It's still in progress. We were hoping to be there on a blasting day but, no such luck.


Here's what the finished memorial will look like when it's finished with the work in progress in the distance.


A smaller scale model inside the visitor's center. The inscription below it said, "He will be carved not so much as a lineal likeness but more as a memorial to the spirit of Crazy Horse - to his people. With his left hand thrown out pointing in answer to the derisive question, 'Where are your lands now?' He replied, 'My lands are where my dead lie buried.'"


He'll have a feather on his head that will be 44 feet high. It will be hand built from blast fragments. The face part of the carving is already completed. From what we read, there are no photos of Crazy Horse. The sculpture was primarily designed by talking to people who saw him.


We were fascinated by what was on the dash of the truck parked next to us. There were dried sticks, grass, leaves and a small teepee.


We thought, "What pretty clouds." So, we took a picture.


We talked about going to Wisconsin before we turned back home but since Mount Rushmore and the Crazy Horse Memorial are very close to the Wyoming border, we decided to go that way. It took us less than 30 minutes to get to Wyoming.


This historical marker marked the Cheyenne - Deadwood Trail, The Beaver Creek Station and Hank Mason's Grave. Hank Mason's headstone reads, "Hank Mason, Killed by a Bear, 1893."


Those "pretty" clouds from before, they started turning in to scary dark rain clouds.


The Red Butte. We thought it was cool.


Our first glimpse of the Devil's Tower!
