Day 4: Sturgis SD to Cheyenne WY
The Holiday Inn Express in Sturgis is popular. Took a little effort to get to breakfast. We left Sturgis and headed to Mt. Rushmore. Wow. I can’t even imagine the effort this took. Pretty amazing. I never realized how much there was to still do, but couldn’t happen because of lack of funding. From Mt. Rushmore we went to Crazy Horse. Okay, I thought Mt Rushmore was impressive, but once Crazy Horse is finished, nothing can top that. Crazy Horse is taller than Washington Monument. All four of Mt Rushmore’s head can fit into the head of Crazy Horse. We walked around the museum and craft area for a while too. Hunter and Conner each bought a bracelet and Ryan bought a marble turtle. Drove on to Custer to have lunch and continued into Cheyenne. We arrived at the hotel around 8:00pm, had dinner and the boys did some more swimming.
