Photos and Going Home

We are headed home tomorrow.  After nine huge States we are ready.  We we are skipping central Oklahoma, that would add two more nights!  It will take one over night from here, Texas is a big State.

Photos below are Gene in Miles City, Mt.
Cousin Helen and I in Miles City.
Crazy Horse in South Dakota.
Lake in South Dakota.

Hope to sketch today.  Took photos of cousin Pat's granddaughters on their horses and other ranch stuff.  Will add those later.  We are in the North Texas panhandle today near Gruver, Tx.

Have a good trip home. You covered quite a few states. lol

Jo Castillo said...

Thanks, Joan. We should count Texas as two states because we take almost two days to leave and two to come back. :-)

It's always good to get home - at least until the Texas heat chases you back to the mountains.

Jo Castillo said...

Bag Blog, you are so right! It is supposed to be very stormy in Oklahoma, too. Heading south seems right. We already have an Angel Fire trip in our sights for mid August!! Maybe see y'all there.

have a good journey

wonder if they will ever finish the Crazy Horse monument

Jo Castillo said...

Jennifer Rose, thanks, we had a good trip. Got home last night.

They have spent the last few years improving the visitors center and museums. The Crazy Horse sculpture hasn't changed much since we were there. Maybe the big hole under the arm. I will have to find my old photos. Ha.

I think a few people in charge passed away but family is trying to continue with the project. I remember reading about the controversy at the time when the project started

Jo Castillo said...

Yes, they have managed to keep the government out of it. Entrance was $22 each and then the tours were extra. An amazing project whatever happens!

Jennifer Rose Phillip said...

it will look pretty impressive when they finish it :)

Joanna said...

I didn't realize Crazy Horse was so far from being completed. It's pretty cool.

Love the photo of you and Helen.

Jo Castillo said...

Joanna, we were surprised at the slow going, but it is so big and I'm sure takes lots of money. The visitors area is much improved!
