South Dakota (part two)

After we left Mount Rushmore, we visited the Crazy Horse Monument.  Work began on the monument in 1948, and it is no where near completion.  Here is a model of what it will look like when it is finished:
We watched a short film about the history of the monument and sculptor who began the work.  The work today is carried on my his children.  There was an interesting museum of Native American artifacts.  I could have spent more time there, but we had more on the agenda that day, so we couldn't stay long.  Here are a few pictures from the museum. 

After we left Crazy Horse, we had lunch in Hill City and the Bumpin' Buffalo.
Next stop was the Badlands.  We just drove through the park and stopped here and there for pictures.
