I met a gentleman the other day who had spent his honeymoon at Vista Verde 51 years ago. He came for a visit with his great friend, Elvin Tufly, who family owned the ranch from the 30's to the 70's. It was great to visit with Elvin's family and friend, and hear stories from days gone.
A Colorado honeymoon 51 years ago was probably a lot different than the romantic honeymoon getaways we are providing guests these days! There weren't bubbling hot tubs, luxury cabin, gourmet meals and guides waiting to take the couple out into the mountains to play. But, the same serene vistas and peacefull quiet provided the young couple a chance to relax and enjoy the beauty of the ranch.
What a great treat to meet these folks, hear their stories, and imagine what life was like at our special Colorado dude ranch just 50 years ago.
