About an hour from C Lazy U Ranch, we turned on the country music. I felt a little giddy as we drew closer to the ranch, happily wearing the cowboy hat that usually just collects dust on a shelf in my closet. The dirt road welcomed us first, followed by trees draped with twinkle lights and a warm greeting from ranch hand supervisor Susanna Graybill, who goes by Suz, as soon as we pulled up to the main lodge.
Either way, the scenery is spectacular. Evenings can be spent fireside in the lodge getting to know the other guests or perhaps in the hot tub or on the porch of your cabin enjoying the serenity of a Rocky Mountain Fall. And remember, those Rocky Mountain stars are the brightest you can imagine.
Montana Working Ranches allow you to experience life as a cowboy — with cattle drives, round ups and ranch work. We might need to move some cattle to a different pasture, check the fences, make sure the livestock have water, or help with other ranch chores. Riding is the main activity, and ranch horses are used for moving the cattle out in the open country through meadows, wooded canyons, and mountain tops. You are encouraged to ride abreast to enjoy the breathtaking country.
