Lost Valley Ranch, Colorado's premier dude ranch, is tucked back in the Pike National Forest.
|The Hayman Fire passed through here back in 2002, and you can literally see where the Lord's hand just covered and protected the valley from that fire. Because of the fire, you now have uninhibited and gorgeous views of the Colorado Rockies.|
Welcome to the ranch...
where every morning you are met with a view like this...
And every day you have so many activities to choose from:
|You can see Pikes Peak in the background.|
|Horseback riding will take you to some amazing views like this. This spot always reminds me of a John Wayne film:)|
|except I don't think Hank meant to end up in the water here;)hehe|
|with our awesome chefs! haha|
|me and my cowboy|
|with other guests who quickly become friends|
The ranch is great for seeing wildlife:
All while being served and hanging out with the most fun and loving staff:
|Wranglers assigning horses for the day. (Hank's on the left:) Did I mention the cute cowboys??hehe|
So if you are in need of a break from the city or just looking for an unforgettable vacation for you and your family, you have got to check out Lost Valley Ranch. Their website lists even more activities for adults and kids. Hank and I loved working there, and it will forever hold a special place in our hearts. As I sit here waiting on our baby girl to be born(she was due yesterday), I thought it was fitting to write about where our little family first got its start. :)
