Natural Beauty Makes CO Perfect for Dude Ranches
It is fairly common for people to purchase ranch land in an attempt to join the US beef industry. Judging from the strong performance of the US beef industry in recent times, who can blame them? However, people looking to purchase ranches in Colorado often have an option that other ranches cannot offer.
The state of Colorado has been blessed with abundant natural beauty in the form of the Rocky Mountains as well as multiple lakes and rivers. This natural beauty is often the reason why people who purchase ranches in Colorado convert their properties into dude ranches.
A dude ranch is a vacation destination that offers its guests a chance to live the Old West experience. More often than not, dude ranches offer their guests a chance to go horseback riding, hiking, and fly fishing, not to mention that they get to work with cattle and perform other tasks cowboys of old regularly performed. Seeing as how nature significantly influences the activities offered at these places, dude ranches and Colorado seem like a perfect fit.
To become a dude ranch, however, a ranch must first start out as a guest ranch. The ranch must then apply to become a member of the Dude Ranchers’ Association and pass an inspection before it is recognized as a dude ranch. With all the natural beauty in Colorado, it would be hard to imagine a Colorado guest ranch failing to become a dude ranch.
