First stop on the 2 States/3 Rocks tour was Crazy Horse.
This was more impressive to me than Crazy Horse. This time of year there are no crowds to speak of, and the weather was beautiful. On the way from one to the other, I noticed a trailhead sign that I logged for after Rush. I did go back and get a few miles on the Centennial Trail. I didn’t push hard, because (a) nobody knew where I was, (b) no cell service, (c) my IT Band was still barking and (d) a & b again.
But here’re some photos of Rushmore.
That did it for day one for this old boy. I found a nice rest stop, and crashed. Devils Tower was on the agenda for tomorrow.
This was my favorite of the three. A lovely trail that ringed the rock provided a nice run. Really uncrowded. And not a single alien to be found. I even sang certain tones while on the back side, and got no response. I didn’t even crave mashed potatoes. That was my only disappointment. Photos? Yeah, I got some.
