HAPPY BIRTHDAY MICHELLE, SOME BIG STONE HEADS!
Today there will not be as many miles to travel. First stop was Wall South Dakota to visit Wall Drug. Wall is another small town, and back in the early '30's a man and his wife, Ted and Dorothy Hustead, bought the town pharmacy and moved there. Business was slow, and Dorothy came up with the idea of posting signs on the highway offering free ice water. It worked and today Wall Drug is a multi million dollar business.
Looking at the map I saw we would be going by Badlands National Park. Since I bought an annual National Parks Pass in St Louis when we visited the arch we decided to check it out. It was unique and different and just another place that makes me wonder at the creation of this earth by Heavenly Father.
On to Keystone and Mount Rushmore and Crazy Horse. Crazy Horse is a monstrous stone carving planned to be Chief Crazy Horse riding his horse. After 64 years they have managed to finish his face. It reminds us of Gaudi's cathedral, Sagrad Familia, in Barcelona. I don't think it will ever get finished.
