I always thought that the highlight of our trip to the Black Hills of South Dakota would be a visit to Mount Rushmore, but having just spent some time at the Crazy Horse Memorial near the town of Custer, I am rethinking that assertion.

Rather, it is named after the rock formations that resemble giant sewing needles. They're actually spires.
