We had some suprising visitors stop by the other day to see our Colorado dude ranch. It was in the whirlwind of a Sunday turnover, as we were getting ready for some new families to arrive, filled with anticipation and hoping they picked the best dude ranch. All of us were running several directions at once. Lucky for me, I was the one who took some time to show these gals around and hear about their traveling adventures.
Elaine and Marlene are two women with a strong travel bug. When both of them got through raising children, and found more free time, they decided to team up and start traveling the world. Their trips have been inspired by the book, “1000 Places to Visit Before You Die”. Their stop by on Sunday was not just because they were enjoying a Steamboat Springs vacation, but because Vista Verde is part of this book. Little did they know that they would be visiting a luxury dude ranch in Colorado when they first took on this epic journey!
I didn’t get a chance to spend a whole lot of time with these gals, but I was so taken by their travel stories that I took a picture of them in front of our Colorado lodge before they headed off to see the Zirkel Wilderness area, just up the road from the resort.
If you get a moment, check them out at Wild Women Wanderers. It may inspire your next vacation!
