... crisply enunciating a brief history of each president and the construction of the monument. Then, as the darkness became deeper, the music swelled the lights came up, and there they were.... This image really doesn't do justice to how striking the scene was.

The next day was pleasantly relaxing. Leah, her two granddaughters, and I headed out to see Deadwood (the nearby "Wild ...
... Custer State Park, past a host of welcoming picnic areas alongside babbling streams or placid ponds, and granite outcroppings, a prominent, picturesque feature of the landscape.
Next stop was the Crazy Horse Memorial. What an incredible project! Korczak Ziolkowski, a Polish immigrant from Boston, began work in 1947, alone, with primitive tools. A local Sioux chief wanted a Native ...

Next on to Crazy Horse Monument. Honestly we almost skipped it, but so glad we did not. It is a very touching story of the world's largest sculpture in progress, on how the monument came to be, history of the sculptor and his family, and it's connection with North America's Indian people.

... up, Bryn and Anna played nicely together. We started in Anna's bedroom where Bryn gathered all the stuffed animals that decorate the room and placed them in Anna's lap. Anna didn't care too much about the animals, but she was fascinated with Bryn. I had a hard time getting a picture of the two of them that didn't have Anna looking at Bryn instead of at the camera.

TravelPod Member ReviewsFairfield Inn & Suites - Rapid City
Service was good. In my opinion, more suitable for families with younger children who can enjoy the waterpark which is geared to the little ones. Rooms are clean and comfy. The location isn't particularly scenic, it's right by the tollway, but is close to Rapid City, and 30 minutes from Mount Rushmore, etc.
