I love to learn about new things, and see new places, and that’s why travel is so amazing to me. However, driving into the Crazy Horse monument (after paying $30), I failed to consider my children, and what their experience might be.
We parked and walked into the large museum area. I could see display cases with moccasins, tomahawks, tribal dresses, a very large teepee, colorful photos and artwork on the walls… Very cool!
Definitely recommend the Buglin’ Bull!
Afterwards, on our walk back to the Yukon, we found the most fascinating little shop. Full of animal furs, antiques, rocks, and other various cool finds:
Instead of going straight to Mount Rushmore from Custer, we decided to take a few hours to rest back at the cabins.
We walked down past the General Store, to the equipment rental, and found there were no kayaks available. But there was a stand-up paddleboard (SUP). The lady said all 3 of us could go on 1 paddleboard. I had my doubts, but paid for it anyway.
We sat on the patio with our snacks and watched the chipmunks eat up anything that people dropped. Asher, fascinated by all bugs and animals, watched in wonder as a chipmunk came right over to us and ate some chips. He kept calling them squirrels 😛
Later on, Asher very cutely called it “Mountain Rushmore.” 🙂
