First ever autumn Volksmarch at Crazy Horse


For the first time ever, people got a chance to make an autumn volksmarch at the Crazy Horse Memorial.

Crazy Horse spokesman Pat Dobbs says nearly 3,000 people made the 6.2 mile trek to stand on the arm of the carving.

Dobbs says Ruth Ziolkowski was absolutely thrilled with Sunday's turnout. Some participants got a second wind at the finish line, sprinting or even dancing to the end and giving high fives to a Crazy Horse staff member who cheered the tired hikers to victory.

Dobbs says Ruth is optimistic that the autumn volksmarch will turn into an annual event.

People will have another chance to start hiking Monday between 8:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m.
