This place was breathtakingly beautiful. The most luxurious dude ranch. They thought of everything with fabulous decor, luxury amenities in the rooms, great western art and memorablia in the rooms and high class feel throughout. It was still the most friendly, down-to-earth setting for a place to stay. I was greeted by the longhorns as I drove up the long climb to the main house. At the main house was the indifferent hound dog who momentarily lifted his head to let me know he didn’t care if I was there. After that, I reveled in the beauty of the country and the relaxation if offered.
Now, about the pool. This trip is all about risks so I went swimming in public for the first time in five years. That’s the reason for the photos of the scenic pool. I had a delicious steak dinner in the upscale steak house and enjoyed a bottle of wine. But the one thing that kept me from really feeling free at this oasis was the sign in the resaurant. There was a big drawing of a rattlesnake with the words underneath, “Snakes are on the move, watch your step”. Oh, well, Mom really conditioned me to dislike those slitherly things.
