Those are the sounds we’ve been hearing around the ranch lately. We just finished up the last week of our 2010 season and, gee whiz, was it a fun-filled, exhausting, beautiful, magical few weeks or what?
We wound down our season nicely with three adult-only weeks. The first we had 25 guests, the second 15, and the third only four. We included an art week in there too, which was a first for everyone involved and a ton of fun for both the folks who came to the ranch to paint and for the folks that came to the ranch to ride but ended up picking up a paint brush or two while here.
Now, it’s suddenly fall around here. The leaves are turning. The temperature is dropping. Our lives are slowly returning to that of our winter hermit-hood. This private mountain valley that overflows with families and friends all summer suddenly becomes empty except for a few horses, chickens, doggies, and us.
And we start looking forward to next year right about now. We hope 2011 is just as magical!
