Fun All the Time in Buffalo [1954]

From our old postcard collection we are going back to 1954 to have "Fun all the time" at the Paradise Ranch in Buffalo, Wyoming ...





Postmark is strong but writing has faded so much
we can't read all of it.

A good fence and some nice looking horses.
These are called "real photo" postcards
among collectors.

 This one was not used.
We posted another card from Paradise Ranch last year in this post.

Paradise Ranch is still in operation ... check out their website here.

Linking up today with Good Fences ... thank you Tex!

Does the thought of a vacation at a guest ranch in the USA Rocky Mountains sound interesting to you?

Thanks for stopping by John's Island.

  5. Their new marketing is a little more dynamic, ain't it. My wife and I say often that we're moving to Wyoming when it is 95 degrees and 95 percent humidity here in Tampa.

  9. No, John, I can't say this is something I would look forward to. Dude ranches don't appeal. Then again, there aren't any old women in the pictures, either! :-)

  20. I enjoyed the photos from the postcard and am reminded of so many old Western shows and movies! Looks like a perfect place to see Roy Rogers and Dale!

    One of my uncles worked at a dude ranch--probably in the 50s, though I'm not sure when. The ranch work did him good, and he ended up as a sheriff and then judge before retiring. I'd enjoy giving ranching a try for a while just to see what it's like.

    As usual, a very neat find! Thanks for sharing it with us!

  21. They must be doing something right to still be in business after all these years. : ) To be honest, it is not my kind of vacation.

  22. Love this, John....how fun.
    When our son was little, we had friends that had a dude ranch in Colorado and we went there several times. My hubby loved every minute of it...I was always ready to get back home...scared of horses and bears...just a general cry baby. lol

    Paradise Ranch looks like a place I would enjoy very much.

    Have you ever been there.
