    I saw a show on that a while ago. The guy died and his daughter or son was taking it over. It's being funded through private funds and the tourists that visit the site. I think they said it should be complete by the end of the decade.

    The picture of Mt Rushmore is real. It also probably looks smaller now because Paul took the photo from a higher elevation AND about 2 miles away. As for crazy horse..... Not in my lifetime will I ever see it finished. They have completely finished the head and have moved on to the horses head. In the last 20 years they have completed roughly 15% of the carving. No way are they going to finish the last 85% in a decade.

    They only do a few blasts each year, so I doubt Crazyhorse will be done in the for seeable future. I have some video footage of a night blast from last year if anyone wants too host it for me. I think I posted it before though.
