My own cross country ski vacation day

By Reid

Days off here at Vista Verde Ranch are the staff’s chance to get out and enjoy the beauty we have all around us! I personally love to get out on the perfectly manicured track for some skate skiing with my dog, Dodger. It’s good exercise for the body, and does wonders for the soul. Here are a few shots from my ski this morning!

Starting out through the Homestead pasture gate.

Gotta love the fresh corduroy.

Swing by the homestead cabin for a look…on a sunny day like today, no fire is needed! By this time I’m toasty warm from burning calories!

Enjoying the view of Wapiti mountain…if I’m super ambitions, later today, maybe I’ll grab some snowshoes and try to summit! We’ll see if Dodger is up for it.

Over the river….…

and through the woods…

My favorite spot along the trail! Does it get much better than this?

Almost home! waving hi to the wranglers as they load up some bales to feed the horses in the barn.

Hungry horses await at the end of my ski…beauty surrounds me! EWF! We’re tired!

And that is a good start to a beautiful day! It’s like my own cross country ski vacation, just for a day.  Some good cardio, quality time with the Pup, and a scenic wonderland to play in! Wish you were here at this winter vacation getaway dream!

Come visit us soon, at Vista Verde Ranch!
