    Day 6 - Mount Rushmore Crazy Horse

    ... it shouldn't be a problem. Just take your time. The trail will take you to a close view of the monument. Worth the hike. After you return you can stop in the gift shop. Considering the time of the year, way over priced. Nothing unique here. I say shop at any other site for a better deal. Every attraction around has souvenirs for everything. Just about 10 minutes away is Crazy Horse. This non-profit site is a wonder. The heads ...

    ... that was (not) fun (at all). This lasted for the better part of an hour, and once I was back on ground level, I found myself driving along a straight road right through the middle of the prairie, with no lighting other than my car's headlights. I even almost hit an animal or two (I said almost!).

    So overall, with the exception of a few moments, the drive to Cody was not a good time. But hey, this is what I signed up for! Cody itself is among ...

    When we arrived in Custer things were just getting a little monotonous, a similar routine day to day made it seem like there wasn't much between getting up and going to bed. Long driving days were beginning to take their toll and the camp food wasn't up to much as a general rule. Once we had our tents up we decided to play beer pong, a traditional American drinking game involving 10 cups, with beer in, at either end of the table and ...

    ... two signposted 'dog exercise areas'. However, the carved monuments are truly amazing, and the story of the huge instruments that Borglum used to get the angles and proportions right made interesting reading. If you don't know, the four presidents carved into the stone are Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt, and it took a team of 400 carvers 14 years to complete. Truly an amazing feat.

    Then it was on to our third stop - Jewel Cave, ...

    It turned out to be a beautiful, warm, sunny day, so this morning we decided to ride the motor bike through Custer State Park. We came here last year but I forgot about the spectacular views and rock formations. Also, we drove through seven tunnels in total. When we came upon our first tunnel, there was a couple driving a fifth wheel and they couldn't pass through the tunnel. They waved ...
