Hardin, Mt has a real neat museum @ exit 497. Plenty of gas at 495. Billings can be a zoo at any exit although 452 ain't bad.
Of course ya gotta stop at Custer Battlefield aka Little Bighorn. The Last Stand has a great gift shop and restaurant.

I completely agree with Still Kicking, Mount Rushmore is better. If you can, hike the short presidential trail to get a closer view of the sculpture and views from different angles.

Work is done on Crazy Horse when funds are available.

Not like some projects that are funded on credit our great grandchildren will have to pay for.

I was just there (two weeks ago)and it looked like there was on going work to me.

Privately funded project tend to take longer than publicly funded ones.

I am not sure if the public can see both sides of the monument or not right now.

If you have the time visit the Indian Museum of North America at the Crazy Horse Memorial, my wife and I found it very interesting. They even had a few of the beads that were given to the Indians in trade for Manhattan Island.



I'm sure there will be skeptics so I'm posting a picture of the documentation.

I spent so much time walking around looking and reading about all of the pictures and artifacts that I got into trouble because I was holding up the two who were with me.
I also almost forgot about taking a few pictures.

I got a kick out of this T-Shirt that was for sale in the gift shop at Mount Rushmore.


We also enjoyed the Alpine Slide in nearby Keystone, SD. That was a lot of fun.





Donít forget to visit the other side of Mt. Rushmore.

How is the drive on rt 240 - Badlands Scenic Loop Byway? We were thinking we could make the loop on our way west and stop in Wall. It looks gorgeousand I am sure there will be many photo stops.
