{time again to saddle up?...}

My grandmother celebrated her 94th birthday yesterday, on Mother's Day. One of her favourite stories to tell is about a train ride she took from Vancouver to the Flying U where she and her best gals would spend the weekends riding. A few hunters "took a shine" to her and told her they would send her something from their hunting trip. She didn't believe them until she opened a huge parcel sent to her office the following week... a grizzly bear skin!
The ranch bug is slowly nibbling at me again as we get closer to Summer. Wouldn't a long weekend at one of these rustic tented ranches be just perfect?!
This one looks similar to the Clayoquot Wilderness Resort that I've shared with you before, but
its actually The Resort at Paws Up in Montana... Stunning!

  1. It's like Glamping but with a rustic feel to it... :-) Coincidentally, my grandmother was born on May 10 - usually falls close to Mother's Day. She passed away last August. She was 96. Or 100 - we couldn't confirm which one was her real birth year: 1910 or 1914.
