The ranch is in a great location, just outside of fossil. You get a taste of what it's like to live on a ranch. The owners and their family are so kind, full of intriguing stories and a testament to what true ranchers are all about. Hard working, good people. We did a horse ride that was like nothing else. Not a nose to butt trail ride but a real 'ride' on genuine cattle working horses. Such a treat. It was very hot when we were there and we had no A/C in our room - we slept with the window open and got to hear the most amazing thunder & lightening storm. All part of the experience! As many have already mentioned, the farmhouse breakfast with Phil & Nancy is the best.
