Wow - what a day!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi Everyone,
Well we certainly had a full day today!
Firstly we called into Bear Country USA, which is a drive through wildlife park. Just checkout all the animals that are in there:





And that was just in the drive through area - there was more!
They had a seperate area that you could walk through:





It was a fantastic park, great value for money.

Then we headed off to Mt Rushmore - Wow again!

We saw this on the way - thought of the Retro Roamers, so had to add a picture for them :)

Very Sleek Looking! Dont know about comfort though!

Here is Mt Rushmore:

The Sculptor
We added a few more heads!

There were heaps of  people there it is Summer Break now for school, they have 3 months off!

They have a flag for every state

After this we went to the "Crazy Horse Memorial"
It is a work in progress, it started in 1948 and the head is clearly visible:

This is what it is going to look like:
But it won't be finished for many years. It is a tribute to Crazy Horse and his indian people who were betrayed!
This is not a government funded project, they will not accept any government funding they rely on park admissions and donations.
There is a Indian Museum of North America on site with beautiful Jewellery and wares for sale:

Dave was pretty impressed with the knives!

Well that was our day. We will spent the next couple of days travelling so there won't be much to report for while.
