Local tribesmen provide entertainment in the form of traditional dancing on the observation desk. Future plans include a North American Indian museum, a university and medical training center, all to be built on the land between the visitor center and the monument.
(Note - we were pleasantly surprised to meet friends from church at home while watching this performance.)
It is difficult to convey the size and scale of this incredible project. Even when looking from the visitor center viewing platform, it is difficult to comprehend that this massive sculpture is a mile away.
But imagine this - an estimated 4,000 people could stand atop Crazy Horse's outstretched arm. And all four presidents' heads at Mount Rushmore could fit in his head. The feather alone will stand stand 44 feet.
I have a lot info about Mt. Rushmore on my Custer page, see that, but please, visit Mt. Rushmore if you happen to be in the area!
Fishing in the many lakes around Crazy Horse. I recommend visiting this bait shop in Custer for both the juicy worms and the interesting decor.
Here is a shot of me with my mountain bike at the Iron Creek Trailhead of the Centennial Trail which runs through Custer State Park. It is an excellent place to ride.
This burro was looking for a handout, and when nothing was offered, he decided to taste-test the safety belt latch on my car.
Visit Custer State Park and take a drive on any of the scenic loop roads. You may actually see some wildlife on the Wildlife Loop Road.
Here is a photo of some Bighorn Sheep.
