You never know what awesome sight awaits you when participating in an American Volkssport Association (AVA) event. This week's featured photo is of the mountain carving of the warrior Crazy Horse, taken during this year's annual Crazy Horse Volksmarch, sponsored by the Black Hills Volkssport Association each June. Unofficial numbers indicate some 11,000+ people participated in the best attended Volksmarch in the nation. Started in 1948, the mountain carving, upon completion, may become the world's largest sculputure. There are thousands of trails and hundreds of AVA walking clubs across the nation just waiting for you.
