Our first week open was an eventful one. We had several amazing guests and one amazing family. The Crandall family chose to make Wilderness Trails their site for a Western adventure: all twelve of them. I was excited to finally have people taller than my 5'11," and as they walked in, I was gleefully wondering which beanstalk they climbed down from. Initially, the wranglers were a bit nervous when one of their sons wanted to become "the man from snowy river," but it turned out to be a wonderful week. There were all day rides, trips to the lake, ziplining, rafting, and even just swapping stories around the campfires was such a great time.
When they left, it felt like saying good-bye to family. Matriarch Teri Crandall expressed this sentiment that got me all choked up:
Words cannot express the wonderful time I had at Wilderness Trails!!!!!! You treated us like family and your enthusiasm and sweet personality made me feel right at home!!! I loved sharing your " getting back in the saddle moment" that was priceless!!!!! I know your family was elated to see the video!!!! I hope you are enjoying this weeks folks. We came home to scorching heat and humidity. Ukk!! I mowed yard and worked in my garden all day today and it was HOT!!!! I will have to learn to put pics on here!!!! Take care and God Bless You!!!! I miss your sweet smile!!!!!! You are welcome here anytime!!!!! Your friend, Teri Crandall
Here is hoping for a summer full of guests like this weeks!
