We visited Mount Rushmore and loved all that we saw there. The work it took to create that masterpiece is awe inspiring. The men who built it understood that generations to come would see and honor what this place means to America.
When we left Mount Rushmore we visited the Crazy Horse Monument. One of the builders of Mount Rushmore was asked to build another monument on the sacred Lakota grounds. He made it the life work of himself and his family. So far only the face of Crazy Horse is finished. They have made a site that includes a museum, a theater, a restaurant, and a college.
It is expected that the monument could take 50 more years to finish. The photo shows what the finished work will look like. The mountain behind it is where the completed monument will be.
Both monuments touched my heart.
