Today is a special day for us. Thirty five years ago Rudee and I repeated our vows and started a lifetime of adventure together. We have had many ups and downs over the years but have always been each others best friends. We met in High School at a varsity basketball game and have been an "item" ever since. We have never had a lot of money but there is a lot of love and faith in our lives. We have raised two wonderful children who are now both married and making their way in the world. We have also been blessed with 3 grandchildren and one step grandchild who are the light of our lives.
I wanted to do something special for my bride on our special day so I arranged to surprise her with a private tour to the top of Crazy Horse. This morning we rode the bike out to breakfast and I told her I wanted to go into work to check for our mail which had been forwarded from our mail service. Once we got parked in the parking lot I told her what I had planned. We were both really excited as we went inside and met our driver James.
We had to fill out release forms since we were heading up to an active work and blast site. Once all the paperwork was done he led us out to a waiting van. James has worked at Crazy Horse for several years and gave us a lot of history as we drove up the gravel roads getting closer and closer to the top of the mountain.
We parked near one of the maintenance buildings where we had to put on our hard hats.
We then walked to the end of Crazy Horse's outstretched arm and turned around for this impressive view.
Here is a shot of the complex where we work from Crazy Horse's point of view. :-)
and a zoomed in shot of our campground.
Ever wonder what is up Crazy Horse's nose?
We both were thrilled to be able to experience this and it made our 35th Anniversary one we will never forget. I'll keep you posted.
