Golden Anniversary at the Ranch

Our guests this week, Jim and Donna, celebrated their 50th anniversary in May.  They came to Wilderness Trails Ranch to commemorate the special occasion with their extended family:dude ranch vacation, family togetherness, family bonding, memoriesSusan, Donna, Ian, Galen, Jerry,and Michael.

When asked what the secret was to a long and happy marriage, Donna answered -much to the amusement of the staff and other guests- "He traveled a lot!"

She then added, "My uncle told me, 'Don't ever lie to your husband; but don't tell him all the truth either."

Jim was more sentimental with, "Every year you appreciate being married to a wonderful woman and having a wonderful family more and more."




 Congratulations to you both, and may you have many more happy years together!

Love in the Mountains

Romance was in the air at Wilderness Trails this past week!  One couple came all the way from Italy to enjoy a three week honeymoon across the West! We felt very fortunate that they chose WTR for one of those weeks.

We also had a romantic mountain proposal- Rafael decided our setting was the perfect one to propose to his fiance Davena              

"I just wanted to give a big thanks to the Roberts Family for the best vacation I have ever had. I have been all around the world but this was the greatest place I have ever been. Other than Gene and Jan, I wanted to thank the whole staff from the wranglers and wait staff. They were more than accommodating and their hospitality was out of this world. Special thanks to Sandy for setting up a great vacation, Erica for the horse clinic, Connie and Gary for suggestions on the special event, Josh for taking the best off-trail ride, Jen for matching you with a horse on your skill level, Ryan (sorry if I got the name wrong) for the fly fishing instruction...I want to go on but I'm not good with names. If anyone would like to know more, feel free to contact me at I am more than happy to tell you about our experience at Wilderness Trails Ranch. On a last note, we have decided to make an annual trip to the ranch to start each summer."     ~Rafael Gajilan
