No, it's not Colorado, Idaho, Montana, or Wyoming. It's even better! It's Alberta, Canada! Rocking "Are" Ranch is located in west-central Alberta, 17 miles southwest of the Town of Rocky Mountain House, in Clearwater County, approximately 150 miles northwest of Calgary.



Rocky Mountain House was a fur trading post on the North Saskatchewan River as far back as 1799. Now located at the intersection of Highways 11 (David Thompson Highway) and Highway 22 (Cowboy Trail), it is a hub of activity for oil and gas, forestry, agricultural, and tourism.
A good hospital and medical clinic, shopping, restaurants, banks, motels, camp grounds, and other services are available in town.

All baled and ready to go. We upgraded to a stackmaker the following year.

How's that for nonchalance - breadloaf stacks were made with a Hesston stackmaker.

Fall colour spectacular - harvest is in the barn.
