REDnesday - Crazy Horse REDs

The Crazy Horse Monument Museum (Black Hills South Dakota) had so many REDS I went "crazy" taking photos!  From the bead collection display (of so many different colors) to the beautiful bead work to the painted bull to the beautiful quilts.

A very sleepy kitty sunning out on the observation deck at Crazy Horse Monument.

The bead collection was unbelievable!  Every color you could think of was on display - these are the reds. 

Here we are!

And here is the Crazy Horse monument up close.  They have been working on it for decades - no federal money is involved just sponserships and public donations.  No one knows what Crazy Horse looked like so the monument is to represent all Indians and the Indian spirit.

Please join our lovely host Sue at It's A Very Cherry World (here) to see more REDnesday!  Hope you enjoyed our day at the Crazy Horse Monument and the RED world I found there.

Update:  We are in Dawson Creek, British Columbia, for a few days.  The Alaska Highway starts here.  Tomorrow we are doing some sightseeing in the area before we finally take off on the Alaska Highway north.  Alberta and British Columbia Canada is wonderful and we are enjoying our time here - friendly people and great scenery.

Oops - I almost forgot.  We celebrated my sweet hubby's birthday yesterday (June 8).  Happy Birthday Honey!
