Just finished celebrating my sister’s birthday on the ‘Weekender’ at AnchorD. We had a great time on our vacation with the first night in the Hunter’s Cabin at the Anchor D Ranch. A very warm and cozy cabin with firewood ready, comfortable beds, down comforters and coffee ready to go.

The weekend was an amazing experience from getting onto a horse again after many, many years of being away, riding thru the miles and miles of trails, seeing the breath-taking vistas,( especially the waterfalls, the snow peaks and the rivers), and being entertained at the campfire with rope puzzles and music.

The staff, Pablo, Kelly, Andy, and the new Aussie, Jamie, were always helpful, warm, and welcoming and obviously enjoyed their work. Dewy and Fester were our fearless leaders, with Fester circulating the camp at night to ensure everyone was safe.
