Introducing "The Never Ending Adventures of Roper and Katy"

Our summer kicks off next weekend and our summer staff are arriving anxious to begin probably the most memorable summer job they will ever have in their lifetime. We have a major check list going to have everything ready which includes getting cabins opened, horses ready for riding, food ordered... Roper decided to be a big help by checking out the horses with making sure that they are ready for our guest's. Here he is on Tex saddle ready and gave the paw's up. He decided he would rather run along with Katy on the trails than on a horse. He will leave the riding to our guests and staff no worries he and Katy will be a step a head on the trails. Stay tuned because you never know what these two will be doing here at Medicine Bow Lodge.

"Right here in our Backyard"

Moose watching is absolutely one of my favorite obsessions and especially during the summer months. They are such a unique animal with their awkward look because moose have long lanky legs, like toothpicks and an enormous body. They have horrible eyesight, but a very keen and sharpness with their hearing. Did you know that they are vegetarians? That is why moose love the marsh areas with all the vegetation and they can disappear quickly in the brush areas becoming camouflaged instantly. A cow moose with her babies is more dangerous than a mountain lion, or bear. You have to use common sense. All of our kids have had to take safety by climbing a tree out of respect for the cow moose. 
 These twins were born last year. They were about a month old.Mid June, early July is normally when the babies are born. It has become a favorite after a delicious dinner, and dessert to go moose watching. Dusk is the best time and early mornings, before breakfast to have the best chance to see moose in their habitat here in the Medicine Bow National Forest. They may even pose for you. They frequently visit Medicine Bow Lodge,with all the plants and berries right here along the creek behind our lodge. Our staff are always eager to take guest that want to jump on horses and go looking for moose in the meadows. Just another reason I love where we live, and what a privilege it is to do what we do right here in our backyard.
