4th of July Weekend Bash at Mill Creek Ranch – w/ the Folks of Town & Country Auto Plex – Salida, Colorado
WOW… The 4th of July Weekend was Popping at Mill Creek Ranch! The Town & Country folks, out of Salida, Colorado, joined the other guests for a Great Grand Opening Fun Time!
ATV’s and Cycles added to the landscape, and when the weather cooperated the guests went off for the day, bagged lunches in tow, to ride on the miles and miles of trails surrounding the ranch.
Upon returning, a Chuck Wagon Cookout was waiting for them, BUT, not before shooting off baseballs from the Potato Canon. Amazing how far those orange painted balls went! The children were promised $1.00 for each ball they recovered from the pasture, from a few hundred yards away!
One of the highlights for many of the guests was the Grand Tour of the Museum with its vast variety of horse drawn wagons. The dance hall/corporate meeting room amazed many as to its size…in fact one child thought it would be a great roller skating rink!
The Hot Tub became very popular for those who bounced around during the day on their ATV’s. The Restaurant got everyone’s attention when they saw the old fashioned, unique ceiling fans operated by pulleys.
RV and Tenting spots were reserved, and the rooms in the Stagecoach Lodge were full capacity. The pool table in the 1880’s old west Lodge seemed to be a popular spot for all.
On July 4th after a hearty breakfast several guests left, while others took a quick ride before loading up their ATV’s and Cycles.
One couple hung around for a quick horseback ride for their young ones! From all indications it was an experience that would give memories to treasure!
