Sheer utter exhaustion was the feeling of over 200 individuals who made the entire trip of 200 miles over the vast rolling prairie and rivers and on through the Black Hills of South Dakota in the 100th Anniversary of the Ft. Pierre to Deadwood Trail Ride. Those participating rode by horse back and wagon with few modern conveniences.

Cheers from more than 1,000 people lining the streets welcomed the 300 individual riders and 50-plus wagons pulled by horses, mules and oxen as they entered the historic town of Deadwood at high noon on Aug. 15, 2008. Wagon trains from Sidney, NE and Cheyenne, WY approached from the opposite end of the street where the three trains met in front of the Historic Franklin Hotel.
