Crazy Horse Two

We had such a good time the first  day we went back for more.

When we left we took needles high way back home. That took

longer then I thought because I only had 1/4 tank of fuel.

So when it said we had 10 miles to go and my Fuel gauge

was dining I didn’t know if we were going to make it.

If you know the needles high way the last ten miles  is five up hill

five down with all the switch backs it seem a lot further.So hang on

and lets go for a ride.I have a video of the blasting but couldn’t

figure  it out put on the blog.



This the road going up needles high way you can see the high way and the

Tunnel in front of us.



Here is the resin for the name needles high way.




This is the tunnel  you have to go through  at the Needles point


Just on the other side of the point we seen this mountain goat.

We just thought that was great.

then we seen buffalo deer and more goats




Good shot with the camera Pam all three are Bucks.


Here comes the last ten miles






We made it to the gas station  just in time we put $100.00 in and

it still was not full, but the road and the view  is something you have to see.

arrived at are park on Oct.2 second about 5:30. So now fun start


For some one who doesn’t like snakes I seem to find my share. 

We took Mom to Reptile Gardens and had good time once we got out of the Snakes.



The Mirrors were in New York Worlds Fair.



Oh Did I for get to tell you  we had Snow on the ground on the 5th of Oct.

we went to Mount Rushmore and it was snowing so hard that my pictures deleted them

self’s so I can’t show you any pictures of the snow.But here is a good picture from the 7th.


Blue sky’s just about 70 degrees  ok it was 57 still close to 70 .

Ok we half to back in order here we went to big bear country first.


These three bears are going home we saw the bears when we were on the 1880 train.

This is my best pictures  out of the hole raid Pam got some real nice pictures but she was by the window.


Just in case you have not seen snow clouds in a long time this is what they look like.

These are neat because the sun see shining through.


How about this I turn back and Pam gets fresh  with an old gold digger

Tin can hairy . LOL


Back to big bear country he’s not to happy that we are there



This guy coming to meet us.


I took his picture with my finger on the up button of the window


I don’t think he happy to see us. If you want to see some bears this is the place to go.

we were told that bears were so active because it was cooler  out side.


He is enjoying the cooler weather to.


this otter is a different color but I don’t know otters either


Crazy Horse and we had a Crazy good time. We went to Crazy Horse two days

when we got there the first day we found out they were blasting on the next day

I thought we should go back to see it because you don’t get to see them blast to often.

I’ll just show you some Pictures of our first day.




This is what it will look like when it is done.


A nice picture   of Crazy horse as the sun is going down.

CBS Detroit

DETROIT (WWJ) – Oil prices hit a new nine-month high and gas pump prices climbed closer to $4 a gallon across much of the country.

WWJ’s Stephanie Davis reports that metro Detroiters will have to dig deeper in their pockets to fill up their tanks, as gas prices rise about twenty cents in two days.

Regular gas prices ranging from $3.59 – $3.69 a gallon along a stretch of Woodward from Royal Oak to Ferndale were seen on Thursday.

“I’ve got an economical car but it’s kind of crazy but what can you do about it, unless everyone works together to protest it, there is really nothing you can do,” said Dante Combs from Highland Park.

Combs says he pays between $38 -$40 to fill up his 13- gallon tank with mid-grade.
