Hot Springs was a really nice place to visit - very friendly, compact and quite picturesque. After leaving we headed off for Wind Cave National Park in glorious sunshine saying "I hope we see a bison." Well we didn't have to wait long. There are hundreds of them roaming around freely and we were able to watch them grazing from right up close. In fact a bit too close at one point. We left the car and went on a signed walk to a lookout tower where ...
Left Heartland RV at 10:00 am. We saw Mosquitos and these small black flies (gnats?) keep biting us. Murray claims that they drew blood on him so we're driving to the nearest Walmart for more supplies and bug repellent before heading to Hart Ranch which is close by.

The face is complete and there is still a lot of work to be done. I would not be surprised if it takes until 2048 to be completed.
The scale is much larger than Rushmore, with all 4 President's head able to fit into Crazy Horse's head.
Another long day saw us finishing around 8.30 pm so pizza and bed!
