Of course. I'd be delighted. Though hopefully we may have a much sooner opportunity.
About 30 years ago or so, I was driving alone in the Black Hills, and near the center (it was 9-10AM), there was a large clearing, small creek, and some sort of lone store or something off to the left (northeast) side.
I was travelling south and saw up in the hillside trees to the southwest, a large white sculpture of an Indian in full headress sitting on a horse. Much of the horse was hidden by the trees, but the head & back were visible. Course I had no camera.
Anyway, I didn't think much about it until a few years ago, my daughter & I were back there to see relatives (Sturgis) and tour the area. I mentioned my "vision" to some of the older relatives, and NONE of them recalled seeing an Indian on a horse up on the hillside. And they drive thru the area frequently.
My guess is it was some sort of huge model for Crazy Horse to see what a completed memorial might look like.
Or maybe you have some sort of sixth sense. I'm serious. I know how much that area means to you and when you feel that way I think you have a connection others don't.

You think it was seen only in my "mind's eye" and was not actually
there physically? It's possible, but (wow) for a mirage, that was
SOME vision.

I didn't stop at the time because I figured it was just a model. But I think I can find the location, and I'd sure like to ask the business owner if he/she remembers it.

I'm not saying you're nuts or anything, I'm just thinking that's a mighty big model.

Oh it's quite all right Lis, I AM.

Did a virtual tour (satellite) of the Black Hills about 2 hrs ago, and noticed that there have been quite a few buildings, both residential & commercial added to the area, so now I'm not so sure I could find the spot again. I did see a couple places that COULD have been the area.

If the model actually existed, it was probably made of plastic or some other lite material, even styrofoam perhaps, as pillars and many other architecural features are commonly made, though likely not so common 30+ years ago. IDK.

Lis, the model was a reduced scale, and didn't exactly dominate the landscape as one might think in looking at the scale of the current memorial.

If I had to guess, I'd say the model was about 2 1/2 times avg human size. So using avg height 6', the model may've been 12-15'
from the ground, enough to expose the top 1/3 above the pine trees.

Just sayin'.
That's not sayin' much.

Maybe john wooden-legs got the name of the battle wrong....according to you, but sarah palin mis-attributed the quote and twisted the meaning of it.

On your scale broken scale, these two balance out.

Errors of this type are common everywhere, and on BOTH sides. But because politicians do it, it gets more ink & air time from an opposition's attempt to cast the person in the worst possible light.

Most, who are already aware of this, assign the merit % deemed worthy at the time, and move on from there.

In case any of you didn't notice the correlation, Sister Katlyn has not posted here since before the tornado hit Moore, OK last week. Now there's a whole bunch of tornadoes hitting the same area and other points near Oklahoma City. I am praying for her and anyone else living in that area and I ask that each of you do the same. If you don't believe in God or prayer, please at least wish for her safety and that the area will be spared as much as possible.

DANGER-DANGER-DANGER

Check Nat'l Weather right now

Huge system with multiple tornadoes has moved in to OK City area and has reportedly entered suburbs.

OKC and Moore are being hit again, and I-35 north & south in OKC is bumper to bumper with folks scrambling to get out. Tornado is expected to tear across I-35. Sitting ducks comes to mind.

Please tell me you are kidding. That is so awful. Roberta I don't know if it helps but Kathryn seems to be okay. I've seen her on another thread all week.

No, Lis, he wasn't kidding. I haven't seen an update in an hour or so, but it IS awful. That area had more than its share last week.

I am SO glad you've seen Kat and that she's okay :) Please tell her that and that I hope she'll stay that way through this batch :s

IIRC, she's from CA? It was shovelface living in OKC or Tulsa.
