Another week of adults only? Oh my!

Exciting news!

We added another week to our "adult-only" season! We will now have five full weeks available. September 20-27, 2015, will now be open for $1650 per person for a Sunday-to-Sunday stay. The fall colors will be most spectacular and the fireplaces will feel oh-so-cozy that week, so don't miss out!

Our horse program will still be in full swing, as well as our fishing and hiking programs. We will feature a number of guest musicians in the saloon and our talented crew will be entertaining as well.

Kid's Rodeo, fun for all ages!

The Kid's Rodeo is a great finale to the week where Kids can show off their riding skills in the arena and parents can cheer them on from the bleachers! We have fun things for all ages at Paradise Guest Ranch.

"Where can kids star in their own rodeo? Paradise Guest Ranch, where each guest six and over is assigned his own horse. The ranch makes families a priority." -Ladies Home Journal

 

Setting up the barrels.

Mabel Meldrum, mother of Paradise

 

Miss Mabel Lee was sent out west by her father because she was too "boy crazy" back home. Unfortunately, Mabel's father sent her to a state with a very unbalanced ratio of men to women, and she quickly married a man named Gordon Meldrum and made Wyoming her new home. Gordon and Mabel inherited what we now know as Paradise Ranch from Gordon's father and used it as a working cattle ranch.

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.

Come Together

While it is a way of life for some, most people's daily routines do not include mountain trails on the back of beautiful creature that is often more in tune to its surroundings than we are. Taking a breath of fresh mountain air at the top of rock formation that lets you see for miles is not something that comes in a classroom or office. Seeing the excitement in a child's eyes as she pulls in a trout all by herself is something that can't be generated from beating a video game or receiving and A on a spelling test.
