Black Hills of South Dakota
The Black Hills are the highest mountains east of the Rockies, the most famous of which is Mt. Rushmore where presidents Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln, and Theodore Roosevelt, were carved in granite by Gutzon Borgium. This spectacular sight is still as popular today drawing visitors from across the globe. Near the figure of Custer, a memorial to Crazy Horse is now also being carved and is thought to be the world’s largest mountain sculpture currently in progress. It is being created in honour of the North American Indian and will stand an amazing 563 foot high and 641 foot long.
