From the sagebrush and red rock canyons of the southwest to the pines and snowy peaks of the northern Rockies and on to the sweep of the high plains, today's dude ranges are found in every western state. Guests negotiate steep mountain trails, thrill to the pace of "fast" rides, or meander through meadows carpeted with wildflowers. They sink gratefully into sleeping bags... or a hot tub... after a day on the trail; abandon diets on breakfast rides and evening cookouts... watch wildlife... and listed to the call of Canada geese or catch sight of elusive songbirds.
