Just when I thought I had see the greatest monument of them all, Mount Rushmore, I drove roughly 17 miles¬† southwest via US 16/385 and came upon another mountain sculpture that I didn’t even know existed. It is called “Crazy Horse” and is located in Black Hills, South Dakota.¬† This monument is being constructed in honor of Chief Crazy Horse.

It is very impressive although it is not yet completed. The final dimensions of the monument are planned to be 641 feet wide and 563 feet high. The head of the Chief Crazy Horse alone is 87 feet high. This is 27 feet higher that any of the President’s heads on Mount Rushmore.

I learned that the monument has been in the making since 1948 and from what I saw there is still a lot of work to be done. Once finished, it is to expected to be the world’s largest statue. Pretty crazy.
