Details: Tom will take us back in time to 1926…when the Great Northern Railroad was developing the Park…as a dude ranch! Join the dudes and wranglers on the five day, 69 mile south Circle Trail Ride to five of the Park’s famous chalets and hotels. This slide presentation will put you on that trail ride and show you the places they stayed, what they ate, how much it cost and how the dudes got to the Park. It’ll be a ride to remember!
