The Rubicon

Bridal Veil Falls

Bridal Veil Falls

The Rubicon (Latin: Rubico, Italian: Rubicone) is a shallow river in northeastern Italy.

The idiom “Crossing the Rubicon” means to pass a point of no return, and refers to Julius Caesar’s army’s crossing of the river in 49 BC, which was considered an act of insurrection. Because the course of the river has changed much since then, it is impossible to confirm exactly where the Rubicon flowed when Caesar and his legions crossed it, even though most evidence links it to the river officially so named. The river is perhaps most known as the place where Julius Caesar uttered the famous phrase “alea iacta est” – the die is cast.

“The Rubicon” was selected as the name for this property in the Black Hills because it sits properly on the top of the Rubicon Canyon which feeds Bridal Veil Falls, and has since been the theme in “Spirit” anyway, that Scott has taken in life; “to move forward and not turn back!” with a positive attitude, Scott would add.Property for Sale - Rubicon
