The Ranch


Outlaw Ranch is located a few miles east of Custer, SD. It is owned by the Lutherans Outdoors of South Dakota and sponsors a number of retreats and other activities as well as the Road Scholar program. The property is quite large with many buildings — they are quite proud of their brand-new visitors'center (below left). A large barn is used for services and for performances such as Art Red Horse's grass dance presentation Thursday night (below right).

The first evening we were there, we walked up to the top of the hill to view the needles off in the distance. The photo at right is from the deck of the lodge where we stayed. The barn is just behind the horse stalls and a horse-drawn wagon is in the foreground.

Here's another photo of the wagon and one end of the horse stalls.

This is the lodge where we stayed and the path down from the lodge to the building with the dining hall.

This is the view from our bedroom window. The rooms are not fancy but they are comfortable, spacious and clean.
