Discover your Inner Cowboy! Discover your Inner Cowboy!

2014 is a "Come-Back" Summer for Us!

The Floods of September 2013 left devastation on the Ranch but it did not destroy US! Some of our buildings are gone, and the beautiful grounds by the river have been transformed, but we are here and ready to offer you a memorable experience.

The Wagon Wheel Bunkhouse

The ecology of a river corridor is fascinating and even more interesting when its life cycles have been impacted by flood waters. Dave Armstrong will lead you through the destructive path from the September 2013 floods and explain how the River will re-establish itself over time. Don't miss this opportunity for a once-in-a-life time chance to learn more about our natural world.
