Winter Holidays at the C Lazy U Ranch

Well, the holidays have come and gone here at the ranch, and things have started to “quiet down” around here. I put that into air quotes because let’s face it- when you’re as popular as me, even when there are only a dozen guests on ranch any given weekend, I am inundated with photo shoots, … Continue Reading »

Happy 4th of July!

A dart of green here A flash of red there The hummingbirds have arrived, … Continue Reading »

New Pastures and Homemade Barbeque

From my personal journal last night: The smell of barbecue fills the air as the first Patio House cookout of the year gets underway (smoked wild bore leg I’ve been told… *gulp* they don’t eat donkeys too, do they?!); compounded with the sunny days and warm temperatures we’ve had these last few days, and the … Continue Reading »

Fencing at Twilight

A cool breeze blows through the Aspen stand and up over the saddle where two cowboys cut and remove winter fence, in preparation for the coming summer months. Twilight has descended in the quiet valley that plays home to our beloved ranch, allowing the boys to fence without breaking a sweat. The smell of snow … Continue Reading »

Winter Elk Herd

Often times Mother Nature feels the need to show us how lucky we are to live at the C Lazy U Ranch (as if we need the reminder!), but the way she provided that example today was a truly rare thing- now, we’ve seen the elk herd on the mesa an innumerable amount of times, … Continue Reading »

From the Horse's Mouth

“Amazing Service, Rooms, Facilities and Countryside”

We had the most amazing time at the Ranch and can't wait to go back. The first 'Wow' came on entering our room - just beautiful. Many more 'Wow's' were still to come during the four nights and five days spent on the Ranch. The walks, the Spa, the Horse riding, Fishing, Archery, Climbing - you name it.
