Crazy Head Closeup

Long ago, I read Logan’s Run, and was surprised to learn that a project to build a giant memorial to Crazy Horse was being built in the Black Hills–very slowly.

In 2008, when I was out in Western South Dakota, I could not resist a visit. Here is a closeup of the head, which recently had some work done.

I don’t know if they will ever finish this thing, but it would be one of the most impressive monuments ever if they did.
