    The Crazy Horse Memorial is the Black Hills', second colossal mountain carving. Work on this privately run project has been going on for more than 60 years and is expected to continue for another 50. Visitors often have a chance to see work in progress as blasting and drilling activity is frequent.  Special night blasts -- enhanced  with cans of gasoline for pyrotechnic effect -- are scheduled throughout the summer. The entrance fee provides access to the Crazy Horse Memorial museum and other areas of the visitor center. The monument can also be viewed from Highway 385 between Custer and Hill City.
