My Dream Vacation: A Dude Ranch

For as long as I can remember, I’ve always dreamed about going to a dude ranch — it’s a little known fact that I have a diploma in Agriculture from Northern Lights College in Dawson Creek — something I pursued because the thing I’ve always wanted to be if I grow up is a cow girl.

At the end of May, I am taking my daughter to a dude ranch in Ashcroft, British Columbia — true God’s country. This ranch has everything — cowboys, horses, sagebrush, an amazing menu, a heated pool and our own private cabin with a view that goes on forever. It’s called Sundance Guest Ranch. and after much research, I’m convinced it’s the best ranch BC has to offer.

Neither of us has ridden for ten years, so I plan to bring lots of painkillers to ensure that after the first ride, we will be able to get back in the saddle again. When I was on their website, I saw that they are in need of “wranglers.” That’s my kind of job! Who knows, maybe I’ll stay for a while 🙂

The pictures will be amazing — something to look forward to for all of you who share the same dream.
Giddy up!

  1. Julie,

    congrats on a dream come true. i am envious! i can’t wait to see the pictures. if you like the dude ranch in BC you will have to try one out in wyoming, united states!! 😉

  2. I would love to come to Wyoming one day — all I need to do is to set up some school talks to pay my way! Freedom of Jenny is doing well in the States, and it would be great to talk to some of the kids who are reading the books. If you have any contacts in schools, let me know.
