Labor Day Weekend was great fun for all of us at 4UR, our Colorado Guest Ranch.

What to do if it's raining at our Colorado Dude Ranch? Eat more dessert!

The town of Creede goes all out for this holiday, with annual festivities such as soap box races, hot air balloon rides, and a half marathon mountain run. There is always a Salsa Fest, where local folks compete against one another for the title of best salsa maker (and we get to have fun tasting it). Labor Day Weekend is one of those special times when everyone at our Family Dude Ranch really gets to experience the community of Creede.

One of the highlights of the weekend was the pig roast – our first ever. Chef Wray Warner hist staff outdid themselves. The Leavell family, all of the 4UR staff, and all of our guests ate with gusto under clear skies. It was a beautiful evening. The pig roast looks like it will become an annual tradition; we sure hope it will!

Aside from the festivities over holiday weekend, September has been fairly quiet. Rain has encouraged our guests to indulge in massage, long soaks in our hot springs spa, and delicious meals. But of course we don’t stop outdoor activities just because of a little rain!

We close for the season on September 24, 2011. If you couldn’t make it this year, give us a call – we’re already booking for next year.
