  • We just had a fun and educational visit with some interesting folk here at the ranch. I continue to be amazed at how old ranch history just pops up, and this time, the stories were really old.

    Peter Welles called me early in the year to find out what was going on at the ranch, and could he and his wife Anita come for a visit in May … of course I said yes! His family built the third log cabin here when my grandfather started our dude ranch business.
