Video of a Crazy Horse blast

As I mentioned in my most recent post, a blast was conducted this week at Crazy Horse Memorial. In the video below, you really get a sense of the memorial’s enormous size. The blast was expected to remove 2,044 tons, yet it looks like just a tiny puff of smoke when viewed against the entire mountain.
