Anticipation builds for hikes
While moving the fence will reduce viewing space, groups like the hikers making the June 1-2 or Sept. 29-30 volksmarch treks will still get eye-to-eye time with the carved face, which was dedicated 15 years ago.
Crazy Horse executive vice president Jadwiga Ziolkowski said that the word spreading about the first Crazy Horse Autumn Volksmarch, is generating “a lot of excitement … I think the National Guard will be the happiest because they can never walk the mountain on the first full weekend in June. They always need to be at (summer training) camp or whatever, so they don’t get to go.”
And, yes, for those who are wondering – there will be separate commemorative medals for the 28th Crazy Horse Volksmarch in June and the first Crazy Horse Autumn Volksmarch in September, which is timed to follow the Custer State Park buffalo roundup, which is set for Friday, Sept. 27.
