The unfinished Crazy Horse Monument in Custer, South Dakota. As you can see in the inset photo, this has a long way to go. When completed the monument will stand 563 feet tall; what a magnificent sculpture it will be!
Martha says these flags are new from when she was here some forty years ago.
It's my first time at Mount Rushmore.
I like the monument from a distance, where you get a sense of scale.
Of course it's fun to stand underneath, looking up George's nose.
You can view Mt. Rushmore from the road if you don't want to drive in and pay the $11 parking fee.
Or, if you're quick, you can catch a glimpse while passing through one of the narrow tunnels on the Needles Highway.
