The Crazy Horse Memorial

Chiseled in timeWhen completed, the Crazy Horse Memorial will be 563 feet high and 641 feet long--twice the size of the Statue of Liberty. The Lakota warrior's arm will point to his ancestral homeland while perched on a stallion more than two soccer fields long.

After visiting Crazy Horse, I visited Mount Rushmore. It was a slight letdown--so much smaller and, in fact, I learned that the four presidential Mount Rushmore figures could squeeze inside of the Sioux warrior's head I was standing in front of earlier in the day.
