Custer, Presidents, Crazy Horse, Gold Mine, Jewels, Mammoths and Devils

I've been so busy helping Troy with his Facebook page that I haven't kept up with my blog.  

Tuesday we visited Custer State Park and Mt. Rushmore.  We saw many animals at Custer but my favorite were the donkeys.

Wednesday we went to the Crazy Horse Memorial and the Big Thunder Gold Mine.

After touring the mine we panned for gold.

Troy and I didn't do so well but Dave found a few specks.

 Yesterday we went to Jewel Cave and then to the Mammoth Site where workers were  carefully digging out the bones of Mammoths and other animals that had fallen into this sinkhole many years ago.

Today we moved to Devil's Tower, WY. Troy wanted to know why so many people drove so far to see a big rock.  He was disappointed that you couldn't go inside.  The campground we are staying in shows the movie, "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" on an outdoor screen every night.

  1. Troy would enjoy see the Mammoths at Fort Robinson State Park, NE. It's not far from Cheyenne.
