This year  I am traveling to T-Cross Ranch. T-Cross is a Dude Ranch that has been in business in Wyoming since 1918 and is built on the old Western tradition of providing a quality horse experience along with the adventure of discovery that is the West. I am here to ride horses and find the trout that exist in the rivers running through this 340 acre property and the adjacent public land. To combine the two is about as good as it gets.

What would a trip of this magnitude be like without a bit of tourist fun.

My friend Mitchell would start us off on the wild ride.

Traveling from Bozeman, MT. Through Yellowstone National Park and down along the Tetons to Jackson Hole, I am happy to report the water in the West is starting to calm down.  The Gallatin was still high but the color was glacial and dropping. A few people were fishing the Fire-hole River and Flat Creek looked good. The Snake River was still flowing strong in spots.The Whitewater rafters and Kayakers were out in force . Those outfitters are working hard for their money this year on account of all of the high water in this part of the West. The trip through West Yellowstone showed the big shops were busy with tourists shopping. We did not see many animals along the road in Yellowstone, but folks were thick at Old Faithful and we stopped to see the old boy blow its top, right on schedule!

T-Cross ranch sits in a beautiful little rugged bowl just to the North of the town of Dubois, Wy. Surrounded by picturesque rock formations and lodgepole pine forest the views and terrain are stunning.

The high meadow lakes are gems seldom seen by many.

The views are incredible!

The Wranglers are Young, Tough and Experienced

The Owner is The Real Deal

I am now on day 5 of the trip. The fishing has been very good. My camera forgot to take along its recharger 🙂 Hopefully the last pictures in the battery life will be of the beautiful rainbow I have been outsmarting.
