|f you're truly
looking to "get away from it all", a stay at a guest ranch can be your best
bet. It's a chance to step away from the harried pace of modern life, back to an simpler time when
people's lives were more closely entwined with the rhythms of nature. Montana guest
ranches offer a tremendously diverse range of experiences, from posh resorts where gourmet
meals are prepared by renowned chefs, and you can do anything from lounge by the pool to
go mountain climbing, to working cattle ranches where you'll work cattle from horseback
alongside the ranch hands.
One constant you'll find at virtually all guest ranches is
the opportunity for horseback riding. There's no better way to see Montana's
grandeur than from the back of a horse. It's nothing like riding in a car or other
motorized conveyance; there's something about the interaction of horse and human that adds
immeasurably to the experience. Many of these ranches have extensive horse herds,
and are experts at matching you with a mount suited to your riding ability. Once
aboard, you'll be riding through some of the most beautiful country on the planet.
From scenic trails to high mountain lakes, to the wide-open vistas of eastern Montana,
much of what you'll see remains largely unchanged from what riders 150 years or more ago
Many ranches also offer superb fishing, floating, wildlife viewing opportunities, rodeos,
cattle drives, wagon trains, and other western activities. Some of the more
luxurious ones also include pools, tennis, spas, and massage facilities. One thing
they all share, though, is the chance to get away from the rat race, and the chance to
relax (or wear yourself to a frazzle, if you so desire) under the Big Sky.
