I knew it was a Dude Ranch from the description, but I was surprised when they actually called it that. Now they are called something else, but I can't think what would describe it better! :-)ReplyDelete
And still true today i bet! I've never had a Rocky Mountain vacation ....but i'd love one :)ReplyDelete
neat little depictions!ReplyDelete
It looks like the perfect place for a summer camp and some adventures!ReplyDelete
enjoyed my visit ... now calling my travel agent. (do those still exist?)ReplyDelete
Summer camp...I have some great memories of summer camp as a kid. But this one looks a bit exclusive.ReplyDelete
I bet people made some great memories there. : )ReplyDelete
This type of tourism was really popular at that time. There were few ways to get there. Looking back at how the railway served is interesting.ReplyDelete
Neat advertisement! I find it interesting to see what the ad writer considered the greatest parts of the camp to try to talk people into coming. These days if someone advertised a place as having electric lighting it would be...ah, almost funny! The Princess Grill and Pizzeria which I wrote a bit about in my last post was built in 1915 and still has a sign over the front door back from when air conditioning must have first come out, advertising that the restaurant is air conditioned. Today the big thing is free Wi-Fi! I wonder what the next attraction/comfort will be in 50 years!ReplyDelete
Travel to the Rocky Mountains by train sounds like fun! I love the old advertisement. Have a happy day!ReplyDelete
