Northwest Wyoming Guest Ranch A Best Kept Secret

Shell, Wyoming: population 83….people, that is….not horses or cows. Lots more of the four-legged variety in that vast and open expanse.

I’ve just returned to California from The Hideout Lodge and Guest Ranch – my second visit and wish I had extended just ONE more week, but alas! This all-inclusive destination resort has a loyal and well-deserved following that is not about to wait for me or you to figure it out – the Hideout gets booked up fast!

If you are looking for a truly special guest ranch experience, you will find the most unexpected pleasure you’ve sought about an hour and a half east of Cody, Wyoming.

Since 1992, the Hideout’s current owners Marijn and Peter De Cabooter have made this family-owned operation the guest ranch lover’s dream come true.

If you want to learn about horsemanship as a beginner or enjoy the skills you already possess on lovingly cared-for animals The Hideout Lodge and Guest Ranch is a wonderful place to go: At the Hideout, you’ll feel both free and safe on horseback; explore some of the most beautiful and varied terrain in Wyoming; be part of a cattle drive or roundup on a working cattle ranch; and feel embraced as a single, couple or family group. You will really enjoy The Hideout. It is the best kept secret I know of.

And aside from feeling like family with owners and staff, you are treated to end-of-day slide shows of your adventures, a social hour before your gourmet dinner, comfortable, rustically elegant accommodations and stimulating conversation with an international group of 25 or so VERY interesting dudes and dudettes!

The Hideout is not for young kids or spa-loving softies looking for facials, massages and general pampering, but the accommodations and meals are top notch, as are the guests, owners, staff and stock.

You will never forget your week at the Hideout Lodge and Guest Ranch and will reluctantly leave, longing for your next visit.

Yellowstone Grizzly Bears

RED LODGE POST

Today grizzly bears thrive in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem (GYE). More than 700 grizzlies live in the GYE. Most of these bears are found in Yellowstone National Park.

Grizzly bears also live in other areas of western Montana, Idaho, and Wyoming.

You can see grizzly bears in captivity at Grizzly & Wolf  Discovery Center in the town of West Yellowstone and at Montana Grizzly Encounter near Bozeman.

Yellowstone National Park Our Natural Heritage

RED LODGE POST

The slogan at the top of the Roosevelt Arch, a huge monument located at the north entrance to Yellowstone National Park near Gardiner, Montana says, “For the Benefit and Enjoyment of the People.”  Is this the best way to think of the park?



Let’s work with the National Park Service to change the mission of Yellowstone and refocus on nature. To start with, let’s lobby the National Park Service to build new structures/monuments and place them at  all entrances of Yellowstone National Park, to express as follows:

Yellowstone National Park:

“For the Conservation of our Natural Heritage.”

The forests, wildlife, rivers, and the landscape, more generally, are what makes Yellowstone a special place worthy of preservation and protection.

As for the Park’s cultural history,  the man-made structures/buildings in Yellowstone are only of minor interest and importance. They are a reminder of   commercial ventures, past and present, seeking to exploit this natural wonderland.

Contact Yellowstone today:

Superintendent, Yellowstone National Park, P.O. Box 168, Yellowstone National Park, WY 82190-0168
