Within a half hour of each other you can find two major American monuments. One was completed years ago and the other is years from completion. I have known of Mt. Rushmore and seen the iconic images for many years. Once you get there you realize that it isn’t that big. But it’s impressive and beautiful. I saw other sculptures by the artist at the museum in Jackson Hole, Wyoming and his work is magnificent. One of the best sights at Mt. Rushmore is the sightseers. They come from all countries and watching people here is a spectacle. The monument still a work in progress is Crazy Horse. The visit to this monument included a short video on how it was commissioned and the artist who began work on it over 50 years ago. This was a fascinating place. The monument is huge and just the arm of Crazy Horse alone is bigger than all the heads of the presidents at Mt. Rushmore. The visitor center also included many Native American artwork, history and artifacts. I loved the bison so it’s my focus on this posting. One final word. See the monument, see the video, read about it – this is the most interesting “tourist attraction” I’ve seen.
