A bit of a game. Somebody will ask a fact in South Dakota. The person that gets it right, can ask the next fact.

Which one of those above mentioned Presidents was:
1) a Sheriff and rancher in North Dakota;
2) has a Mountain named for him in South Dakota;
on which was built a Friendship Monument dedicated to him;
and by standing atop that monument, one can see the land he used to ranch on in what is now North Dakota?

Okay. What is the ground temperature in Hot Springs?
Hint, it remains constant 365 days per year.

Correct Uncle Charley.

When Theodore Roosevelt was ranching in North Dakota, he was a Deputy Sheriff from Medora, North Dakota. Around that time Theodore and Captain Bullock, the Sheriff from Deadwood, SD formed a close friendship, which lasted through life.

As President of the United States, Roosevelt appointed Bullock U.S. Marshall for South Dakota. Captain Bullock promoted and built the fine monument to Roosevelt, called The Friendship Monument that now stands upon Mount Roosevelt, a few miles north of Deadwood. Mt Roosevelt used to be called Sheep Mountain.
The Friendship Monument is a tall structure built out of the rocks from Mount Roosevelt, and has a set of stairs one can climb to reach the round portal at the top. From the top, one can look to the North and see the land that the ranch TR used to own.
