Crazy Horse Memorial

On our way up to Mt Rushmore from the campsite, we took a slight detour to see the Crazy Horse Memorial.
It's been under construction since 1948 which is before I was born

It's a long time, but the Crazy Horse Memorial Foundation does not accept state or federal funds to speed the work along.  So this is going to be a long term project.

Some of the folks in our group went in and went through the visitor center.  They said it was very interesting and totally worth the admission price.  I stayed with the group that was heading on up to Mt Rushmore so I can't tell you anything about what it was like in there.  This is as close as we got to the actual memorial.

A sign in the parking lot shows you in general what the monument should like when it is completed.  I hope to come back here one day and see a lot of progress!
