Summer has arrived in Steamboat Springs and people are enjoying their vacations all over town. Just north of Steamboat Springs, at Vista Verde Guest Ranch, we are enjoying having a full house of guests who have chosen a family dude ranch vacation.
Last week was our opening week, and it was a blast. We had a great group of guests. Some were families with kids, coming for a great family dude ranch vacation. Some were younger couples, coming for a romantic all-inclusive resort ranch experience. In fact, one of the guests chose Vista Verde as the spot to propose to his girlfriend. She is actually a former staff member, so it was especially special to be able to be a part of their romantic mountain getaway when it turned into a proposal.
Now we are in our second week, and have a great group of people from all over the world. There is even a family from Tasmania, although they have lived all over the world. We also have a former state department diplomat who's stories of his world travels completely entrance both me and Ben at lunch the other day. It is the best to be at a dude ranch and be able to meet all these amazing people!
We'll be heading into Steamboat Springs with all our guests for a little pro-rodeo action on Friday night. There we will meet up with the rest of the folks enjoying a Steamboat Springs vacation. In the meantime, we'll stay north of town in our more remote setting, and keep having adventures in the mountains with our guests!
