Archery season has wrapped up, and we spent the day pulling one of the hunting camps. There was a couple inches of snow yesterday, but fortunately it melted off quickly and we had a mostly dry day.

How fun are these bear tracks, and the bald eagle in Second Meadows?!

We had the good supervisors along the other day to keep us in line.

Another beautiful fall day in Colorado

09/06/2021

Yesterday was something quite spectacular: five moose were spotted in one day!
Two bulls, two cows, and one calf. The bull that didn’t get on film, was much bigger than this one.
Moose were re-introduced into the Creede, CO area in 1986. Over the years their population has expanded, and we have been having moose sightings in our unit for the past five years or so. A lone moose, or a momma with a baby or two is not necessarily uncommon, but to see five in one day, that is bizarre.
Excuse the wobbly footage- my horse didn’t want to stand still.

The ‘office’ views were pretty good today.

We are gearing up for archery hunters, and have been busy getting camps set and ready to go.

Another fishing pack trip in the books.
The weather has turned, and while it is so pleasant right now, it is definitely feeling like fall.
We saw three moose, and the very start of the fall colors.

Fishing pack trips provide endless fun and adventure.
We saw two different black bears, a cow moose and calf, and caught as many fish as we could handle.

Second Meadows is a ride into paradise. It’s almost like stepping back in time to the 1800s, and one can imagine how the trappers and mountain men felt as they went about their days.

Pack trips with good friends, good horses, and great country provide memories that last a lifetime.

Take a peek into one of our camps. It’s got all the amenities you could ask for out of a back country camp.
Just because you are ‘roughing it’, doesn’t mean you have to be uncomfortable!
Third Meadows is all set up and ready for fishermen, pack trips, and later on, hunters!

Ronnie's Parents - Harry and Sara Jean Landers, organized by Jane Van Berkum

It is with great sadness that we tell you that Ronnie, our great friend, outfitter and integral part of the ranch, died on Friday afternoon of a heart attack. It was very quick and final and we were with him. It is a terrible shock and we and his parents and local friends are all still coming to terms with it. Ronnie was larger than life, and he loved life. He had a great sense of humor and he was a brilliant welder, big machinery operator and fixer-of-everything and anything. We know he is up there riding the mountains, and making everyone around him happy - but we will miss him terribly. Happy Trails Ronnie - we love you.
