A monument's dimensions should be determined by the importance to civilization of the events commemorated. We are not here trying to carve an epic, portray a moonlight scene, or write a sonnet; neither are we dealing with mystery or tragedy, but rather the constructive and dramatic moments or crises in our amazing history."

Klondike is 1/2 way between the Black Hills, Rapid City, and Yellowstone National Park. Mt. Rushmore is about a 3 hr. drive from the ranch and is a wonderful trip to add onto your vacation. If you have never seen this historic monument before, we highly recommend it. We are one of the closer ranches to the monument so we encourage our guests to take advantage of that!
