DAY 1

Hop aboard Wolf's Coach for your travel west where the wolves still run wild to view the beauty of the landscape and landmarks of the west… the ones you remember from all those TV westerns you watched growing up and are still a favorite of many today; not to mention the history of the Native American Indians and the likes of Custer and Crazy Horse.

DAY 5

A hearty breakfast buffet will be included at the hotel this morning prior to departing for a narrated tour of Deadwood featuring an entertaining mix of humorous facts, history and adventure. Deadwood is an old-west town started with the Gold Rush of 1876, and our tour will travel the same pathways walked by legends such as Wild Bill Hickok, Calamity Jane, Poker Alice and Potato Creek Johnny. Lunch will be included at a local restaurant. After lunch, enjoy a visit to "Tatanka: Story of the Bison" commissioned by Kevin Costner, with an interpretive center and 17 larger-than-life bronze sculptures, including three Indian hunters on horseback chasing 14 rampaging bison off a cliff. It is said that 30 to 60 million bison once roamed the great plains of North America. By the close of the 19th century, it was estimated that less than 1,000 bison survived…. this is their story. Next, we will stop for time to browse and buy at the Prairie Edge & Sioux Trading Post. Shop the Native American inspired items including jewelry, blankets and quilts, fine art, books and music, headdresses, drums, robes and much more.

First begun in 1948 and once completed, this will be the largest mountain carving in South Dakota and the world. Next, we will visit the Mt. Rushmore National Memorial which is situated above dense forests and a pristine stream.
