Crazy Horse Monument SD

We toured the Crazy Horse Monument this week.  It was our first time there and we really enjoyed it. The work on the monument continues with the children of the original sculptor.  We learned that the head of Crazy Horse is as large as the 4 heads of Mount Rushmore.  The blasting continues on the monument but it will be many, many years before the total project is completed.  The place was packed with visitors that day.  We toured both museums, watched the Lakota Indians dancing.  For lunch we had, appropriately, Indian tacos made with fry bread. 


This shows the work that is being done on the arm of Crazy Horse.


This is the shape of the finished Crazy Horse.

Indian Tacos with fry bread and refried beans.  Delicious.
