A model of Crazy Horse at the Visitor’s Center. The mountain monument has been in work since 1948 and is funded by private money. No federal or state funding.
Let me back up to the day we left for South Dakota. We had snow, snow, snow! This is our small snowman we made for the kids and sent pictures to them!
Everything looked so pretty. This is at our fifth wheel on Camp Guernsey.
The snow was just starting.
We came across allot of snow on the drive to SD.
Crossing into South Dakota, we entered Buffalo Gap Nation Grasslands. We could see snow all around us, but only green pastures in Buffalo Gap. It was really unusual.
Back to snow entering Black Hills National Forest!
Oh man, George saw the word “Tatanka” and kept telling me that means Buffalo. lol.
Our first view of Crazy Horse. We got a little excited and loud … Gracie just slept through it.
There were trucks and people working on the mountain.
It is a pretty amazing view. We let Gracie out to run a bit and of course took a picture.
This is an aerial view (not my photo).
Wonderful Indian artifacts and displays at the museum.
Teepee and a display of tools used on the mountain.
Child’s beaded moccasins.
