More from South Dakota



Monday night we went to the Crazy Horse laser light show.





Tuesday morning we went back to Crazy Horse because they were having a special announcement and they were setting off dynamite to remove more rock.





This picture is a picture of the blast.  If you look closely on the right hand side of the rock a little bit above the tree line you can see the dust from the blast.  The special announcement was some woman by the name of Muffy was giving Crazy Horse 2 1/2 million dollars now and 2 1/2 million over the next 2 years or so.   The govenor of SD was also there and spoke.





I thought I got this picture turned, but as slow as it takes to post pictures, you’re just going to have to turn your head to see what we spent the hour after leaving Crazy Horse doing.  We traveled on Needles highway on our way to Mt. Rushmore.  We went through 6 different tunnels similar to this one, doing hairpin turns, switch backs and driving on really narrow roads.  Bill loved every minute of it driving.  I tried not to look over the edge.





Sorry, once again I thought I had this picture rotated.




Sorry again for the picture.  I have been working for 2 hours to get this post ready.


We spent Tues. afternoon with Bill’s, Uncle Bill in Rapid City, SD.  His cousin Dean also came out and had supper with us.  We had a really nice visit with them.  We haven’t seen Uncle Bill since Bill’s moms funeral and he hasn’t seen his cousin in 20 years.

    I love the family picture in front of Mt Rushmore. Looks like fun.

    Having ridden in a car Bill was driving I was thinking that he must have loved driving Needles highway and that was before even reading the line “Bill loved every minute of driving it”.

    I remember driving through the BK drive-thru backwards because the driver’s side window didn’t roll down. Riding with him was always an adventure.
