The survival story of Hugh Glass is immortalized in literature and movies, most recently in Leonardo DiCaprio’s The Revenant. Though the film has fictionalized elements (such as snow-capped peaks in Perkins County), it did leave viewers wondering how to visit the site of Glass’s confrontation with the grizzly. A stone and bronze monument marks the approximate spot where Glass began his 200-mile journey in 1823. Find it by driving south of Lemmon 13 miles on Highway 73 to Hugh Glass Road, then west about 3 miles. The monument is above Shadehill Reservoir, a scenic prairie with hunting, fishing, camping and hiking trails. The 5,000-acre lake was created in 1951 by a dam on the Grand River. Astrid Blumer runs a local restaurant and gathering spot. She is a delightful immigrant from Germany who welcomes travelers and locals alike. After The Revenant became popular, Lemmon citizens organized an annual Hugh Glass Rendezvous that grows in popularity every summer.
