The Best Black Hills has to offer.

Welcome to the amazing and breathtaking Fog Lode of the Black Hills.  Here are some fantastic shots of this wonderful remote Black Hills property located at the head of Bridal Vale Falls found at the top of the Rubicon canyon. Known as The Rubicon.  “This is the place where you can sometimes hear nothing but the sound of falling snow.”

I’ve owned this property since the mid 90’s and have loved every square inch of it.   It’s located at the 6700′ elevation above sea level.  It’s just a zip and a hop (3.5 miles) via snowmobile to the highest ski resort east of the Rockies, Terry Peak. If you want to go gamble for the evening or eat like a king, head to Deadwood for the dinner, only a nine miles by motor vehicle or two and a half by sled.  This property is very secluded yet very accesable to Spearfish in 20 minutes, Rapid City in 55 minutes and Sturgis in 25 minutes.  

No picture can capture this wonderful property and no video can either, however there is this one I shot:

As an artist this was the perfect home for me and as a photographer this was AWESOME!  The hunting is off the charts as you would expect.  I’ve seen Elk, Mule deer, whitetail, turkey, coyote, peacock, grouse and prairie chickens. I shot thousands of shots, and walked many a mile on this property for 17 years.  I sold my home and kept the best piece of land for myself in hopes of coming back to stay.   I’ve now decided it’s time to sell and believe my property is the very best that the Black Hills has to offer.  Here’s why, in the 80’s I was a real estate broker and had the opportunity to look at a lot of land around the Black Hills.  When this property became available I couldn’t wait to make an offer and soon after I was calling it my home.  The views will leave you speechless. There is a view to the North that on a clear day you can see North Dakota, Montana and Wyoming.  Then to the South in another fantastic view, you see Terry Peak  Ski Resort,  across the mountain ridge about 3.5 miles.


Electric to the property – Yes

Water-  This property does NOT have a well and one would be needed to be drilled unless you plan to haul your water from Lead, which some home owners do.  There are high producing well outputs in the area too.
