Area Attraction

When the chores on the ranch are done, we like to take our guests to different attractions and historical sights in our area

Big Horn Lake

Swimming and boating on the Big Horn Lake (Montana's little Gran Canyon) at Yellowtail Dam is a welcoming change of routine on hot days. Tony calls it the little Gran Canyon and he is not exaggerating with that! A daytrip with picknick which everybody enjoys. Bring swim gear!!! Loads of fun and water fights!

The Custer Battlefield

The Custer Battlefield, where the famous Battle of the Little Big Horn (Custer's Last Stand) took place. On June 25 and 26 1876,  Lt. Col. Custer and his elite soldiers of the 7th. cavalry - 263 men - died here, fighting more than 2000 warriors of the Lakota, Cheyenne and other tribes. The sight can be visited and a little museum tells the stories through guided tours, short movies, collected artifacts and pictures. Every year (around the 25th and 26th of june), the descendants of the same tribal leaders and warriors who lived and fought during that time and told the story, organize a reenactment as well. If you are with us during that time, we take you to visit and see where it all happened.

Pryor Mountain Wild Horse Range

For almost 200 years, the Pryor Mountains have been home to free-roaming bands of wild horses.  The government has set aside an area of 31,000 acres on top of the Pryor Mountains as a refuge to those horses, who are said to be descendents of the spanish "colonial" horses.  There are TV shows and documentaries about those horses and one in particular that you might have heard about: "Cloud". We do day trips to the wild horse range and the ice caves in the area. It is a whole day, but absolutely worth the time. Open only between June and September/October

Yellowstone National Park

Yellowstone National Park is an excellent off ranch trip as well. Usually we leave the ranch early in the morning and spent all day. Back late at night.It's a long trip, but it is worth every hour. Breathtaking scenery, geysers and wildlife won't let you forget this very special national park.
