Piece in the New York Times Mentions the Lazy L&B Ranch
We're thrilled that the New York Times published a piece by photojournalist (and longtime L&B wrangler) Claire Thomas that mentioned the ranch, the town of Dubois and our neighbors, the Finleys.
New Swimming Pool!
When Leota and Bernard (the original L&B) installed an in-ground swimming pool at the ranch in the 70s there were not many Wyoming dude ranches with pools, which made the Lazy L&B Ranch stand out. Fast forward 40+ years and the pool was in need of some serious...

One of the things I find most captivating about this area is its ever-changing beauty. I’ll be looking off in one direction admiring the red rocks, turn my attention to a snow capped mountain and when I look back to the red rocks they somehow look different due to a...
Wall of Elk
Driving the girls to meet the school bus in the morning is an adventure in itself as it takes about 20 minutes to get from the ranch to the end of East Fork Road. The good news is that there’s no traffic, well, no vehicular traffic. A couple of days ago we were...
