Crazy Horse National Monument
Recently we loaded up the family and drove out to see the Presidents carved in stone and Crazy Horse National Monument. We started at were impressed with Mount Rushmore and the massive size of those famous heads. When we learned that the entire Mount Rushmore sculpture would fit on the head of Crazy Horse I was floored.
The story of the Crazy Horse Monument and how it has become a family legacy was inspiring. Work on this massive monument is slow but it will be truly amazing once it’s accomplished. I hope the girls will be able to return with me one day to see it completed.
This first picture was taken from more than a mile away. The white outline of the horses head you see on the side of the mountain is more than three feet wide. The horizontal surface you see in front of Crazy Horses face is his extended arm that is point to his land over the top of horses head.
I wasn’t aware that the Crazy Horse Monument was being built with private funds. It is good to see people doing things like this amazing monument with no government funds. When public funds are put into a project via the government there are always strings attached.
