Hi-line senior travelers visit the Black Hills of South Dakota


October 17, 2018

ork on the Crazy Horse Monument began in 1948 by sculptor Korczak Ziolkowski who died in 1982. His family continues work on the giant sculpture, billed as the largest sculpted monument in the world, with no clear finish date. The family follows Ziolkowski's request to not be concerned about a timetable but to do the sculpture properly. Work continues year round except when snow prohibits the crew from accessing the mountain.

Reporter's note: During the second week of September 43 travelers from along the H-line enjoyed a week's bus tour to the Black Hills in South Dakota. The travelers represented 27 different communities in Montana and one couple from Georgia. It was the second year for a motor coach trip organized by my wife, Sherry, and me and promoted through the senior centers along the Hi-line. This year we had three intergenerational pairs on the trip, that's a senior parent traveling with an adult child. That worked well and we hope to see more intergenerational travelers on future trips.
