RV trip day 24: Mount Rushmore and Crazy Horse Memorial


Today we saw the last of the attractions we intended to see—Mount Rushmore and Crazy Horse rounded out the list—but we heard today about Spearfish Canyon and were advised to check it out. That's tomorrow's agenda, and then our sightseeing is pretty much over and done. We still have 1,000 miles to go before home, though, so we will overnight later this week in Cheyenne, Colorado City, and Albuquerque. If enough energy remains, we may explore Albuquerque for a day. We're tired from all this fun, though, and are itching to get back to our routines.

Above is the Crazy Horse Memorial, 61 years in the making so far. This will be a work in progress for several generations to come.


We saw this fellow moseying down the road in Custer State Park. Signs warn us not to approach any wildlife, especially bison, as they're big and dangerous. We stayed in our car for our photos.

I've loved your photo journey, Bob!

Go roam around Old Town in Albuquerque or go up to Sandia Peak!!! Great photo opportunities either place.

Golly, Crazy Horse certainly hasn't changed since I last saw him in the early 1990's...

We're going to skip sightseeing in Albuquerque this time because we're antsy to get home. We do need to see Old Town sometime, though. And we've taken the lift up Sandia Peak before. It's a beauty.

Christina, I guess Crazy Horse is off to a rocky start, eh?

wow! lovely again. Particularly enjoyed the beaming face with the great presidents in the backdrop. Now I'm smiling with her.

Hey, is that Nancy? She looks positively vibrant compared to the stony faced men. Hi Nancy!
