There are many beautiful areas that can be included in a day’s excursion from the ranch. The south entrance to Yellowstone Park is an hour’s drive, and from there it is a short distance to Old Faithful, Yellowstone Lake, and numerous geyser basins. Jackson Hole, adjacent to Yellowstone Park, is the headquarters for both white water and more leisurely float trips on the Snake River.
There are also many scenic side trips in the Dubois Area. Dubois is a classic small western town with an interesting history. It was a meeting place for trappers and fur traders, and around it were the wintering grounds for the Shoshone and Arapaho tribes. There are two small museums devoted to the history of the area, and information about the local Big Horn Sheep herd.
