Since I don't have a finish this week to show or anything besides lots of snow and backstitching (boring) to show on my Train project, here are some pictures from my summer vacation. I know, I know. I'm very late posting these, but better late than never. :-)
Here they are:
NOTE: The hole in center is 10 stories tall. This sculpture is massive!!!
Sculpture of what Mountain will eventually look like. Mountain can be seen through hole under pointing arm.
Mt. Rushmore: South Dakota
Cathedral Spires: Custer State Park, Custer, South Dakota
Ram in Custer State Park
Buffalo roaming at Wind Cave National Park: Custer, South Dakota
The Badlands of South Dakota
Probably one of the places I enjoyed the most this trip was the Crazy Horse Monument/Memorial. Hearing the story of how the monument started and the dedication of the sculptor (Korczak Ziolkowski) and now his family to continue this project without any funding was fascinating. Touring the sculptor's studio and home were so awe inspiring. A truly brilliant, dedicated artist.
