LOVED LOVED LOVED IT!!! Absolutely beautiful, peaceful, friendly and FUN!! We got in on a Saturday evening, and as we drove up first thing we saw was all the "dude's" and "health fitness" people sitting around a beautiful campfire. There was this tall handsome cowboy walking around and roasting his guest marshmallows and telling great stories! Next A.M. got up to a wonderful breakfast, then off on a beautiful and peaceful horseback ride around the ranch. The sights were breathtaking that made one think of the old cowboy days and their glory! Our guide was excellent as well as the rest of the staff at Ranch Cortez. I will definitely be going back for a longer visit soon! 5 Star Rating in this gal's bank of memories!
THANKS FOR EVERYTHING Larry and Mary!!
