Landon and Marcella had seen the Crazy Horse Memorial once already, but went with us to see it on this day. Wayne and I love visiting tourist attractions with them as they are never in a hurry and they never give away the punch line before the end. Terrific people.
We stopped for lunch at Black Hills Burger and Bun as we drove through Custer. I really liked the burger we'd eaten there the week before Marcella and Landon arrived. It was really too cool and windy to sit outside but we had Lexie and Ozzie with us and the sun made the car too warm sooooo..... you get the picture. I still feel bad for having everybody sit outside.

|The Crazy Horse Memorial receives absolutely NO government funding. |
As a matter of fact government funding has been turned down.
|Too much back light for a good photo so I'll just take a picture of the effort.|
|This is the only museum I know that allows dogs -- but not on the floor.|
|The white scale model of Crazy Horse to our immediate right is 1/34 of the actual stone sculpture. |
The actual Crazy Horse Memorial is in the background.
Sadly, the burgers we ate for lunch might have been the cause of some gastric trouble for Landon and Marcella as they were a little "pale" the next day.
