Going to Chief Crazy Horse Memorial and the Native American Museum is always interesting because it is a work in progress. We went the first time in 1984 when there were only outlines on the mountain, but no features at all. Now there is Chief Crazy Horse's face, and work on the horse's face is in progress now. The work is much slower than Mt. Rushmore because they do not take government money. It is literally a family-run business that pays homage to the Native Americans in our land. The museum is awesome with contributions from most of the tribes in the United States and some outside the United States. I did not take as many photos as I did two years ago, but it is well worth visiting.
We ate supper there at their restaurant. Phil and I had the Native American Taco. It was delicious! It is regular taco stuff served on flat Indian bread. Hayden had chicken strips and french fries. He ate every bite.
Then we went to Mt. Rushmore to see the evening program. One of the rangers, Ranger Deb, had a fantastic patriotic presentation and ended that portion singing a patriotic song. Ranger Deb can sing! We saw a video of the making of Mt. Rushmore made by the Discovery Channel. Then the lights came on. Beautiful!
It was late when we got home, and we raced each other to sleep. I think Hayden won. Another wonderful day!
