There will be two chances this year for up-close photos of the gigantic face on Crazy Horse Memorial. For 28 years a spring volksmarch has offered the chance to walk to the face of the massive Black Hills mountain carving and this year a fall volksmarch will also be offered.
The spring walk is June 1-2 and the fall walk will be Sept. 29-30, capping off the Buffalo Roundup/Black Hills Photo Shootout weekend.
That's right, if you aren't excited about the photographic opportunities in the Black Hills on Sept. 27-30 you should think again. Custer State Park's annual Buffalo Roundup has moved from its traditional Monday morning to Friday, Sept. 27. That evening the Black Hills Photo Shootout kicks off a weekend of workshops and fraternizing with fellow photographers. Then Sunday and Monday is the new Crazy Horse Memorial Volksmarch. All this is also during prime time for fall colors in the Hills.
Time to mark your calendars before something else comes up!
By the way, those are my friends Brian and Laura Klock of Klock Werks Kustom Motorcycles in the photo.
