June 30, 2019: This morning we broke camp at Fish ‘N Fry and made a leisurely trip 50 miles south to the Custer Crazy Horse Campground. Along the way we stopped at a visitor center by a pretty lake.
We checked in at the campground after they guided us back to it and assisted with guidance while I backed the trailer up and into the spot off a loose gravel road. The 4×4 capability of the F-350 came in very handy! Since the sites are so close together they have us two sites for the price of one.
After completing setup we went to the Crazy Horse Monument. $24 for the two of us to get in, but that includes a pass to come back in to the laser light show at night and one more entry over the next two days. This is what it is supposed to look like when finished (not in our lifetime).
This is what it looks like today after 71 years of carving the big granite mountain.
Here are the specs and a comparison to other similar items. When completed this thing will be the largest of its kind in the world.
We had a great lunch of salad and a Native American fry bread taco and were trapped inside the impressively beautiful facility while a heavy rainstorm rolled through.
After returning home (trailer) we napped briefly and finally added another state sticker to our RV camping map.
We now have RV camped in 30 states! Plus Alberta, British Columbia and The Yukon Territory.
Tonight we plan to go to the laser show.
