10/03/05 - If you read the posts below, you will see that the main cabin has collapsed. In light of that, I have taken away the requirement to email me what's in the back of the cabin for cache credit. Just enjoy the area, and be careful around the buildings.
This site was an old homestead in the Buffalo Gap National Grasslands, north of the Badland National Park in South Dakota. This area is very unique, worth a stop on your way to the Black Hills
I was told by a ranger that this area of South Dakota was opened for homesteading at the end of the 1800's and that this site was probably built in the early 1900's. I was told that there are sites like this all over, each homestead was 160 acres. In fact, the ranger said someone lived on the site until the late 1960's and the land became part of the grassland only a couple of years ago. You can see a tire trough used by cattle ranchers still.
I ran across this place while hiking and thought it was pretty cool. See if you can find the home and two storage barns. Because of it's fragile nature, I decide to make this a virtual cache instead of a normal one; I didn't want someone to get hurt.
Please be respectful of the site and don't disturb anything.
To get there take I-90 to Exit 121 and go south for a few miles. Park at: N43 53.047 W120 03.547 (two track road). Be careful if it's wet, the mud can be very slick. This is all public land so enjoy yourself. Take some water, it's about a mile hike to the site. While there's no toy to pick up at this cache, the unique and historic site is your treasure.
