Located along the Blackfoot River Valley in the Rocky Mountains of western Montana, the location is a little farther back, from the hi-ways and by-ways and the much-famed beaten track, with a wilderness to join you full of elk, bear, goat, and deer, and where the mountain streams come tumbling in a rush to reappear.

Prepare for a six (6)-day Adventure Ranch Vacation at Rich’s Montana Guest Ranch near Seeley Lake, Montana. Two (2) guests will enjoy meals, lodging, horseback riding, fishing, Garnet Ghost Town tour, wagon ride, campfire entertainment, and all of the scheduled activities and amenities of the ranch. The highlight of the week will be a horseback trip up to the alpine lakes at the edge of the spectacular Bob Marshall Wilderness.
This gift certificate is good through September 2017.
