Colorado Dude Ranch Vacation Single Person Challenge Course
So many of our guest ranch guests have been here numerous times, so every year or two we try to
add something new to our “standard” adventures all designed to make you VERY dirty, very tired & maybe a little bit sore
Looks easy, eh?
Wrangler Nick is back (yee-haw!) & he is drawing and building not one challenge course, but three!

Introducing Flat Stanley to Our Dude Ranch Life:
Flat Stanley is a pal of our friend Julian Byrnes from New York. He loves to travel and Julian suggested that he might enjoy experiencing a Colorado Dude Ranch vacation. Flat Stanley arrived and immediately threw himself into the excitement of winter in the Rocky Mountains.
He had to be a little careful on his first few days because it was very windy and blustery up here and he doesn’t have a whole lot of body mass. He was afraid he might blow away!
He braved the wind in the afternoon though to help me feed the horses.

Laura and Skip enjoy the snow.
Hmmmm…… The weather people call for an October total of 2.9 inches of snow for our area. We got that three weeks ago, and it disappeared the next morning, as October snow should. The aspens still claim October as theirs; time to show off their golden leaves.

Dude Ranch Square dance caller Mark
A little while ago, a journeyman square dancing caller named Mark Hammett somehow got entangled with a local group of crazy people, and the result is the Ponderosa Promenaders Square Dancing Club.
The Promenaders meet every week. Cyril somehow managed to get Ellen, Dan and Justin off the dude ranch to enjoy part of the winter in weekly lessons, and we’ve all been having a ball.
In fact, we’re having so much fun that we’ve installed a new dancing floor in the dude ranch recreation room!
Corrine and Mark

He and his bride Corrine will be joining us for supper every Monday and then . . . → Read More: Dude Ranch Square Dancing in Red Feather Lakes!
