I had a chance to visit the ranch in the summer of 2009 with my family and my newborn daughter. I had actually planned on returning this summer so she could enjoy the entertainment and food. The Wolfe family had done an excellent job of turning this little ranch that offered horseback rides in to part of the Pikes Peak region’s history. It will be missed.
You can see more of my photos from the Flying W Ranch on Flickr.
All Things Considered had a story on the Flying W Ranch the other night, “Colorado Fire Consumes ‘Taste Of The Old West’.”
