After going back to the Harley Shop to pick up some more goodies, we were heading towards Rushmore.
We happen to go threw the small Western town of Deadwood, SD. This little town had a lot of kick, so we desided to stay for lunch!
But before we could even make it to the resturant, we stoped at a few shops and I saw this Flamingo shirt that I almost had to get...but didnt!
Stockade, this amazine place was able to get our food out to his in less than 10 minutes, it was great!
I saw this hat and almost had to get it just to wear at the We Can Tow It Rally, it was pink, and had a crown on it, it was so Miss Rivette material!
This is the Main Strip of Deadwood, its a really neat Western, valley town that had so much to offer.. including slot machines which I hated!
The Deadwood water tower, it just happen to be on the side of a cliff!
We were leaving when this sign happen to stop us from going anywhere.. I was thinking to myself "Oh this should be good!"
Only one person was shot, its funny, I saw him later, and there was no blood! These people in S.D. heal really fast!
We left Deadwood and headed to Mt Rushmore, these were the first shots I got from insde the car as we were still driving!
Yet, another shot from the car, I didnt think it could get much better, but it did!
A close up, the weather was great too, couldnt ask for a better day!
Me standing right after we entered the park, I couldnt believe all the people, it was nuts!
Im thinking one more face wouldnt hurt! Maybe I'll talk to the National Park Service, see what they think!
This is Crazy Horse, I didnt think that I was going to like this better than Mt Rushmore, but funny enough, I did! Its not even done, and I liked it more. I learned so much about this project to build Crazy Horse Memorial. The head alone of Crazy Horse (His face is already done) is going to be bigger than Mt Rushmore and all the 4 faces on it! The horses' head is going to be 22 stores high! This project is completly funded by tourists! It has been going for 60 years, and they have no idea when its going to be done!
I thought this place was SO neat! I couldnt believe how big it was, and having some Native American Blood in me, it was great to see that the Native Americans were going to have something to be proud of like this!
This is what the Carving will look like when it is done! What is so cool, is that it is going to be 3-D, all around. Which mean both sides of this is going to look the same!
After we left Crazy Horse we were ready to get something to eat! So we desided to go to a small town near Deadwood called Lead. This is the only picture I got of Lead because....well frankly it was BORING!! We didnt even find a place to eat, so we left and went back to Deadwood to eat dinner, good choice on our part!
When I was at the Saloon in Deadwood this Outlaw walked by, and we started chatting. This guy looked just like Jeff Daniels, and I asked him about it, turns out, this guy has been in over 300 TV shows and Movies in the past few years. He just started in a movie with Clint Eastwood and it turns out, he lived in Michigan a few years back! His name it J. T. Rockwell! Super nice guy!
Well after all said and done, we put in 12 hours day! It was a lot of fun, and we got to see and meet some great people! I can see why people love it out here so much, its so diffrent, but I can tell you, I wouldnt be able to live out here, as pretty and quite as it is, I would go NUTS!
Off to Bozeman in the morning, cant wait to get to International! Keep watching for more updates.
