This is the considered opinion,
not only of the ranch owners
but of their customers, the con
firmed ranch vacationers who
find a unique antidote for city
tensions in a half hour's perch
on a corral fence, a goal-less
walk over country roads or a
slow horseback ride. Most of
all, they find it in the difficult-to-analyze
way in which the
dude ranch makes its guests part
of its own operation.
Chuck Oswald, operator of
the Lazy T ranch at Joseph,
"Without any doubt, the
greatest pleasure the dude ranch
guest gets out of his vacation
comes from identifying himself
with the ranch and with every
trifling thing that happens while
he is there with the birth of a
colt, the new batch of kittens,
the leak in the barn roof."
Marjorie Ralston, who, with
her husband, Cliff, runs the
Circle M on the Metolius river,
makes the same point, illustrates
it with letters from guests who
go home only to write back and
ask if Sandy's lame forefoot got
well and did Dinah, the cougar
hound, produce males or
females or both. And they send
little presents, equipment for
the house or stable a cowboy
, picture, a tablecloth with the
ranch brand on it.
Indication of a nostalgia for
simple things? Or maybe it is
just a longing for time, the slow
moving ranch time that lets a
man forget his 20th century
obligation to get ahead. Accord
ing to veteran ranch operators,
