September 2014

Wrapping up a season, looking forward to a new one

The guests are gone, the crew has trickeld out, and the ranch is empty as we approach the winter months of the offseason. We are surrounded by memories of the 2014 season, which was exciting and memorable for many reasons.

The season began with heavy rain which produced a lush, green landscape. Jim Niner, the cowboy singer, said it was the greenest summer in his lifetime. During the month of June, the view on the mesa was a myriad of wildflowers and a stunning array of colors.
