Up on a mountain
About 8 years ago we saw Crazy Horse for the first time. It made a profound impression upon us…the commitment of the Ziolkowski family, as well as the meaning behind the Memorial Foundation.
That prompted us to become regular contributors to help in completion of the vision.
Since we are regular contributors, this year we had the pleasure and honor of going to the top of the Crazy Horse Memorial.

Most interesting tidbit – 723 steps according to the guide (I didn’t actually count them). Yes, the ultimate stair master.
Witnessed an explosion
Sometime the work on Crazy Horse requires blowing up (off?) part of the mountain to get to the area where the work is to be done. An explosion was on the schedule for Memorial Day – an event! And we were there.
Gotta admit….Gary (hubby) really knows how to show we gals (Angela and I) a good time.
We still have another 1 ½ weeks left before we’ll be home. If I have a chance, and if WiFi is available, I will blog again about the Great Family Adventure 2010.
