power and is fed by one of the only springs on the Arizona Strip,
providing the ranch with a constant supply of pure water. Our
corporate offices are located in St. George Utah, and all mail should

The Bar 10 staff is a unique blend of Heaton Family members,
seasoned cowboys, and enthusiastic college students. All are
multi-talented and will care for you, assist with entertainment, and
make your Grand Canyon vacation an unforgettable experience.
Over the years, the western atmosphere and country hospitality of
the Bar 10, combined with the secluded location and grandeur of the
Colorado River and Grand Canyon, has attracted individuals and
groups looking for a unique gratifying experience. The Bar 10
offers ranch activities, country buffet-style meals, and comfortable
lodging facilities.
You are invited to the Bar 10 Ranch to enjoy the grandeur, the

-6-
United States - Arizona
memorable one.
Riding Experience:
At the ranch, besides our many scenic nature trails, you can also
ride to numerous historical attractions. Our guests visit a 17th
century abandoned Jesuit gold mine [at 6,000 feet of elevation with
views that go for miles], by the name of San Jose, where many
Native American slaves perished. Deep inside a scrub oak,
canopy-filled canyon at the foot of 7,500 ft El Pinito Mountain,
guests also visit the remains of a 19th century bandit hiding camp
where both American and Mexican outlaws went to lay low. After
all, the Wild West did not end at the border. You can also ride to
2,000 year old pre-Colombian dwellings full of pictographs, deep
inside El Cajon Canyon, or visit a 20 mile long lake, and its dam,
built during the Great Depression by the architects and engineers
that also built Hoover Dam [the dam is a smaller replica of Hoover].
You can visit the ruins of an early 20th century homestead, with a
genuine Model T Ford skeleton gathering rust.
At Cat Claw Cliffs, you will ride up to the top, with spectacular
360 degree views. These cliffs and its canyons, the story goes, hold
the lost gold of an outlaw on the run, stashing his treasure after
robbing a stagecoach. If that is not enough, you can ride to
magnificent views of famous El Tigre, a nearby Sierra Madre
mountain that acted as Geronimo's [famous Apache chief] Last
Stronghold. Indeed, to ride at the ranch is to ride in what was once
prime Apache country, where the fierce warriors once rode, camped
and lived. At the ranch, after all, you are riding, breathing and living
through history.
Besides riding through history, you will also ride through a
diversity seldom seen at a guest ranch. You will explore pristine
wilderness and diverse habitats and have chance encounters with our
wildlife, including mountain lion. Guests ride to our high country,
passing through vertical sierras, to locations such as Los Toros,
“The Bulls,” a mountainous region so remote and secluded few
humans have ever seen. Indeed, so remote is this region, that ferrel
cattle roam its mountains, seldom, if ever, having seen a single
human being.
You will also ride to “El Sordo,” “The Deaf Man,” high country so
named for the incredible, omnipresent silence and quietness one
encounters when there. Down in our Canyonlands, you will ride
through stunning, wet, box canyons full of life, with cliff walls
-7-
United States - Arizona
hundreds of feet high. You will ride through rock formations,
formed over eons, that are beautiful manifestations of nature as it
artistically carves its way through time. Throughout the ranch, you
will explore habitats that are varied, diverse and exotic. You will see
regions full of desert palm trees, organ pipe cacti, ocotillo forests,
sycamore canopies and much more. You will ride through hills
covered in knee-high, golden-colored grass, and see a vast
collection of high country vegetation. With a riding elevation
between 3,200 to 6,000 feet, your entire conception of what a desert
is will be radically altered.

Basic Information:
Situated in one of the most beautiful areas of northwestern Arizona,
we offer 2 horseback rides for each full day you are at the ranch(no
riding on Sundays). Our riding program is exceptional, as we cater
all of rides to our guests’ abilities. And yes, you can ride the
afternoon of your arrival and the morning of your departure! Our
wranglers are friendly, knowledgeable and are careful to match
horses to riders. Our well-trained horses are trail safe and excellent
for all riders. We even have some gaited ones for a really smooth
ride! We offer a variety of rides, including slow walking,
intermediate trotting and fast, loping rides. We also offer
challenging mountain rides(seasonal). Take our popular “Saguaro
Cactus” ride where the views are spectacular at the top. Be sure to
bring your camera! Or choose our ВЅ day rides into the Mohave
Mountains (October 15-May 1 only) where you will enjoy
breathtaking views, authentic Indian petroglyphs and a 60 ft saguaro
(Must stay for 4 nights or more to go on these types of rides). Our
outdoor swimming pool (heated seasonally) is always a favorite,
especially during the hotter summer months. Our hot tub is enjoyed
all year long by everyone, especially those wanting to “ease their
saddle sores”. Located just 45 minutes from the ranch is Lake
Havasu City, where guests can enjoy the Historic London Bridge as
well as numerous water sport activities, including jet skis,
powerboats, pontoon boats, canoes and kayaks. The famous Grand
Canyon is a favorite place for our guests to visit. The west rim
(which boasts the widest point of the canyon) is only 2 ВЅ hours
away and the more popular south rim is 3 ВЅ hours from the ranch.
At the west rim, whitewater rafting and spectacular scenic floats can
be arranged on the Colorado River as well as helicopter rides into
the canyon. The Hualapai Mountains are only an hour’s drive where
you can enjoy beautiful pine trees and elk roaming the mountains.
(A big change from the desert scenery at the ranch!) There is
something for everyone here, whether it is on or off the ranch. You
can relax, read a book, or enjoy the many activities offered at
Stagecoach Trails. Do a lot, do nothing. We leave that up to you,
because after all this is your vacation. In the hotter summer months,
our riding times are altered to avoid the heat of the day. We do not
offer 1/2 day or all day rides during the summer.

wonderful home-cooked food and a dinner bell to tell you it’s time to eat.

Trails. The relaxed, friendly atmosphere and incredible mountain views create a feeling of family,
laughter and good conversation. It feels like you are at home, without any of the work! Every meal
is anticipated by our guests and served with a smile. Three delicious meals are prepared every day at

horseback riding. Rides are divided by ability levels. Breakfast rides
are the most popular, with the all-day rides to a lake the most
spectacular! For a unique experience, the all-day ride can be
extended into an overnight pack trip returning the next day by lunch
time. The wranglers offer a gymkhana, where the adults and
children compete for the prized blue ribbon in various events.

Laramie River Ranch
Basic Information:
The Laramie River Ranch dates back to the late 1800's and it is this
heritage that is reflected in the lodge and five log cabins. While all
the accommodations have been renovated to provide the comfort of
modern amenities, they maintain the flavor and charm of the old
west.
The Laramie River Ranch has a typical capacity of twenty five
guests. Its small size allows their crew to give each guest their
personal attention.
Horseback riding is the principal activity at any dude ranch! With a
large string of riding horses, wranglers will pick out a horse to
match the ability and personality of each guest. Wranglers take out
small groups of riders for morning, afternoon and all-day rides
across a tremendous variety of terrain. Instructional rides are
available and guests are welcome to help groom and saddle their
own horses if they please.
For those who would like to try their hand at cattle sorting, we
have a lively team penning activity that is fun for all. We round up
our steers, team pen with them for the day, and then lead them back
to pasture for the night. It's a great opportunity to improve your
riding skills while having lot of fun.
When you decide to climb down off your horse our naturalist will
be there to offer you stimulating walks and hikes. You'll learn about
the wide variety of plants and animals that share our mountain
home. Birds, antelope, beaver, and your hand-picked herbal tea are
sure to be topics of conversation at dinner. Other activities include
tubing down the river, learning to swing a rope, orienteering,
volleyball and horseshoes.
In the evenings guests can enjoy guitar music, cowboy poetry, or
late night strolls to gaze at the start and learn about the mythology
of the constellations.
Outdoor activities and fresh mountain air create healthy appetites.
Whether it is on the trail or back at the ranch, meals are an event at
the Laramie River Ranch. Delicious breads and desserts, fresh
- 27 -
United States - Colorado
salads, fruits and vegetables, as well as delicious entrees keep guests
coming back for more. Vegetarian and other special diets are not a
problem with advance notice. In keeping with informal western
tradition, meals are served family style.
The Laramie River Ranch prides itself on providing outstanding
vacations for its guests. Come experience their hospitality and the
great Rocky Mountains.

Western Pleasure Guest Ranch
Basic Information:
As our guest you will saddle up for some good old-fashioned fun as
you ride along the ridges and valleys of this splendid land. Ride
through grazing cattle or sneak a peek at deer, bear, and other
wildlife in their native surroundings. Join in some friendly
competition during our cattle sourting or feed your “need for speed”
on one of our fast rides or participate in an afternoon of games on
horseback.
Children are welcome at the ranch and have the opportunity to be
involved in one of the most educational and fun children's program
available today. They learn horse husbandry skills and equipment
care. Every morning they will help catch and saddle their own horse.
Western Pleasure Guest Ranch is a year round destination. As
North Idaho is transformed by a blanket of white, let our “gentle
giants” treat you to a horse drawn sleigh ride or indulge in
cross-country skiing, snow shoeing or downhill sledding. At the
conclusion of these winter activities, enjoy the romance of coming
back to a fire-warmed cabin or warming up next to the big stone
fireplace in the lodge.
Our log lodge, hewn from local timber, features six spacious guest
rooms; each with private baths or discover the peace and serenity of
our modern log cabins in secluded settings. Each cabin can
accommodate up to six, yet is cozy enough for two, with one
bedroom, a full bath, and a sleeping loft for four.

Basic Information:
This is not your typical Guest Ranch and a very unique place. The
accomodations and level of personal attention are boutique-like.
With a culinary schooled chef the food is Western gourmet style.
When it comes to riding this is not a nose to tail ranch. There are
miles and miles of trails to ride on private, National Forest and
BLM land in a variety of scenery.
This is not a nose to tail ranch. Experienced riders will find the
horses of exceptional quality and beginning riders will find the staff
very patient and accomodating.
Guests have the opportunity to participate in an authentic working
cattle and cowboy experience with cattle work, riding, etc. Many of
The Hideout's organized and experienced staff are year-round,
which makes them very personable and experienced with the area.
Safety sets The Hideout apart and great attention is being paid to
the hiring process, quality of horses, maintenance of equipment,
communication, safety training, etc.
During the cattle drives & round ups, guests are guaranteed plenty
of time on horseback as they move over 1,000 head of cattle across
the ranch's quarter of a million acres of range.

guided tour of the nearby Red Gulch Dinosaur Track site with a
local expert. During the summer months, it is not unusual to meet
with international scientists exploring and working on the many
geological sites for which Wyoming is world renowned.
The Hideout has no dedicated kids program because we believe
that family vacations you be a learning experience with children and
parents sharing a fun time together. During the summer season
families with older kids will find The Hideout not only a fun and
exceptional vacation but the entire family will take home many
learnings. From September to Mai the Hideout is mostly adult
