Welcome to Our Patch of Heaven!

Howdy friends! In honor of our 100th year in operation (it's incredible!), the Bar Lazy J is going high-tech! Now not to worry--there's still none of that allowed here while you're on vacation, but while you're away and anxious to keep up with what's going on (or you just need your "ranch fix"), come check in on our ranch blog where you'll find hoards of photos, we'll follow our staff and you'll hear all the latest happenings first! Of course reading about it isn't nearly as good as the real thing, so we hope to see you out on the trail real soon, but until then, check out what's happening and leave your comments--we love to see that our friends have stopped by! Happy trails everyone!

It’s Elect-ric-a

        Things got a bit…uhhh…. “charged” around the ranch recently you might say. As afternoon rides went on hold waiting for a storm to pass one day, a dramatic bolt of lightning hit a tall tree directly between Wayne’s Washroom and the barn. As wood and leaves flew through the air, both guests and staff alike said they could feel it from all directions on the ranch. But one person felt it more-so than others…


        Electra has been with us for several seasons—working on crew and part-time as a wrangler as well. But this particular afternoon she was folding laundry in the Washroom—just yards from where the lightning struck. The surge of energy through the ground and surroundings actually exploded the light bulb above her head! Combine that with the sound of the lightning hitting just outside and talk about a scare! She came tearing out of that laundry room like…well…..someone who thought they were gonna be struck by lightning no doubt!  Check out the path of that lightning bolt. It runs from top to bottom!


        Needless to say, we are grateful for many things, including the fact that there were no fire-starting sparks created during the strike. But most importantly, no one was hurt—especially our sweet Electra!


Or now should we say….. “Elect-ric-a”?
