Day 15 Crazy Horse

A group of Indian elders decided that a memorial should be created to honor the Indian heritage. They asked a sculptor that had won many honors and had worked on Mt. Rushmore to make the sculpture of Crazy Horse, a famed Indian hero. The sculptor, Korczak, worked on the monument until his death, then his family took over the work.

Today the family still works on the monument and does fundraising for the work as well. Also, Indian artisans work and sell items at the Crazy Horse Gift Shop and Museum.

I really got a lot out of the monument and hope all goes well with the work on it.

Off we go to get the tent and explore Cabella's. Then on the road...On to Devil's Tower!

First view of Devil's Tower. It was the center of an ancient volcano. The center cooled as a plug. The volcano was eroded away but the center, made of harder material still stands.
From the KOA campground at dusk.
