american west

early in the a.m to see the horses wrangled in..

the wild west..i spent a summer working on a dude ranch, in wyoming, where everyone wore Wranglers, boots, cowboy hats, and jean skirts! we had a blast waiting on our familes that would come in for a week at a time, & then get invited back to the "round room" for free drinks! the ranch catered to getting away from it pay phone on the dirt road, no internet access..but it did have a airplane strip for those with their private jets..who really needed to turn it off!
that big blue sky that goes on for miles...we lived in cabins and had one of the best summers of my life..

was this by any chance the HF Bar ranch in Saddlestring Wyoming? My family has been going there for years and it is the best place ever.

I have so many memories of ABA! For years our family would spend the 4th of July there. I'll never forget my first "rattle snake" in the Round Room.
