A Day for Monuments and Larger Than Life Men

A travel blog entry by mrighter


... There is a crew of about 15 who work daily on the monument. Blasting occurs at least once a week. Eighty million tons of rock have been blasted from the granite outcropping since the project began. An onsite facility processes the rock into gravel and building block. Shoe size chunks of rock are piled into a wooden bin inside one of the buildings for visitors to take. Paul and I each selected one to bring home.
We were given passes ...

Badlands, Good Times

... A bit taken aback, but still determined, we all scrambled up the cliff. Surprisingly, my parents didn't even think much before launching themselves up. When we got to the top of the ladder and gazed at the rest of the trail, things changed a bit.
