Even though we are not a year-round ranch here at Goosewing Ranch, we have been busy making preparations for next year. And now that it is Thanksgiving week, we can take a breath and take time to be thankful for the past year and for all of you, our beloved guests and friends. As we enter into this season to be thankful, we share some of our gratitude and welcome you to do the same. 

Well, friends, it’s the time of year where we give thanks for all our good fortune and express gratitude for everything we have been blessed with. As the week of Thanksgiving is here, we have some holiday wishes to extend.

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving!  The skies are bright clear blue today and the air is cold, and all the leaves are gone from the trees like the guests from the ranch.  Tis’ the season to be thankful. With all the obstacles 2018 has thrown our way, we know we still have so much to be thankful for.

2018 was quite the challenge (thanks to the Gros Ventre River changing course), but we also learned what we are made of and how much it can bring us all together.

We are most thankful for family.  Of course, our immediate families and especially those of us whose families are ever growing. But also our extended families from our staff to our guests.  Each person holds a special place in our hearts, and we are thankful to have so many wonderful memories shared with many families.

From our family…

Grateful for Our 2018 Season

We just finished the last of our autumn projects and have the ranch closed up tight.  Wow, what a season and autumn it has been. We have been so very fortunate that the weather allowed us to complete many projects, giving us a head start to the 2019 season.  

Look who was in charge: Jack, the son of our very own Amy and Randy.

We do have snow on the ground, and we also have great wildlife all around us. As the people become scarce, the wildlife really take over. We have seen bears (both black bears and grizzly bears), wolves, elk and moose.

Check out this wolf track we found in the snow.

 

Most of the deer and pronghorn have migrated out of the area. I think that’s our cue to do the same and settle in for a long winter’s nap!

So from our ranch to your home, we wish everyone a safe and happy Thanksgiving!
