September 7, 2007

We went on one of the scenic drives today through the Black Hills, choosing the Crazy Horse Memorial as our destination. When this is eventually completed, we can say we saw it at this stage. You can see it for quite a ways across the valley it overlooks. The front most part, including the terraced area, will be the horse. These huge sculpture projects like this and Mount Rushmore just defy belief that they are possible to carry out, but they do it.

We will head towards Montana tomorrow morning and try to be in Glacier Nat'l Park by sometime Monday. The smoke has apparently cleared in that area after some rains, I hope the rains can get to the worst of the wildfires there and completely put them out soon. We'll hope for the best for when we get there.
