    Default Westgate River Ranch

    My wife and I spent the weekend at the ranch. We rented a golf cart for our stay (best way to travel) and roamed the property. The RV and mobile home sites were really nice. There is about a 50/50 mix of full time residents and snow bird. Here are a few pictures of our stay.

    We stayed in what are called rail cars (really just short, manufactured homes) that were really nice.

    Went to the rodeo (probably the most fun event) which is the longest, continuous running rodeo in the state.

    Those guys on those bulls sort of remind me of when I was young and stupid. Great pics. Looks like a great time.

    Man, that is in all American time right there! Horses, boats, jacked up truck, cowboys and cowgirls and a saloon! I think the only thing missing was some fireworks!

    Thanks for sharing the trip with us.

    No fireworks, but there was a skeet and trap range.
