Saturday Spotlight: Fall Round-Up & Chuckwagon Breakfast
Put on your best Stetson and come visit the Ranch for a cattle drive experience! Traditionally, the fall cattle drives of old kicked off in early October, so we will honor this tradition by bringing the cattle to “market” at our reproduction rail car at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. At 10 a.m. and 1 p.m., you can attend our cattle demonstrations and watch the cowboys rope, doctor and dip the cattle. As a special add-on to your day at the Ranch, make reservations for a Chuckwagon breakfast and/or Chuckwagon Line Camp Lunch to round out your visit. (Reservations are required for the historic meals.)
