If you are up for an outdoor adventure and have a four wheel drive vehicle, you may wish to visit the site of Sitting Bull’s death on the Grand River. Directions and guidance to this site can be requested at the Timber Lake & Area Museum as there are no markers, signs, or GPS points. The site is about 15 miles north of Timber Lake on a road called, “The Road to Bullhead.” This road will lead you down the steep breaks into the very beautiful river valley. You can then follow the road to the Grand River and ford the river on a cement causeway, called Joe Leaf’s Crossing, if the water levels are not too high. It is in this general area to the east, that the great Sioux warrior Sitting Bull was born in 1831 and killed on December 15, 1890.
