After the highway, we went to see the Crazy Horse memorial. They are carving Crazy Horse into the side of a mountain and it will be the biggest sculpture in the world, over 500 feet tall. The builders only have his face finished. We also ate lunch there. I had fried shrimp and mom and dad had tatanka stew. The stew was made with buffalo meat and had fry bread in it. I had fry bread for dessert.
The last place we went was Mt. Rushmore. We saw the heads and saw a movie about the mountain
On our way home we drove on the wildlife loop. It was awesome. There were hundreds of bison and we got lots of pictures and videos. There were also pronghorns and donkeys. It was funny when the bison rolled around in the dust. The bison were in the road and they stopped traffic.
When we got home we made Mac and cheese on the camping stove and buffalo jerky. Today was a good day.
Hi from Mom! I like many things about camping-being close to nature, the camaraderie of the campground, stuff like that. Our neighbors at the Blue Bell were really nice and there is a general safe feeling. The first night, we packed our campstove and other stuff
in the car at night but when we woke up the next day, we saw that everyone leaves things out all night long. People seem to help each other out and that is always good to see. The part I don't get about camping is the sleeping part-does anyone besides my family actually sleep the night through? My eyes pop open like clockwork every hour or so. Of course, many of you know that I am naturally a night owl, but that only works well when you have a comfy chair and Cary Grant is on TCM! On the upside, I did see some pretty sunrises, which is not my usual morning routine. To my friends who are early birds, and you know who you are, I salute you. Now I need to get my nap in.
