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!

The End of the Line…uhhh, I mean.…Year Staff Party!

         Our staff is pretty stellar. We have to brag a little. So what better way to show them how much we appreciate them, than to throw them off the side of a mountain? Right? In our defense-- they asked for it………


I don’t know why they look so scared. They know we needed them for work in the morning…..

So we harnessed them up,










And enrolled them in flight school!

Then once we confirmed no one weighed more than a school bus (that’s the maximum weight the cable can hold), we let ‘em rip!

I mean zip!!

As you can see they are hardly even enjoying it….so we had to throw in an amazing sunset in to keep them happy. Do you know in one of John Denver’s song where he sings “I’ve seen it rainin’ fire in the sky” ? Well, we can’t say for sure, but we’re convinced this is what he was referring to. When the sun sets behind a storm, the rain comes down in sheets of vibrant orange. These pictures don’t even do it justice. It’s breathtaking.


        After the zip lining, Jerry and Cheri had everyone over. This time of year, a handful of our staff have to head back to school while the majority stay until the end, so we try to have one last group outing all together. We want to say how much we love all of them and appreciate their hard work and dedication to making the Bar Lazy J a cut above the rest. We couldn’t be who we are without them! So thank you to our 2012 staff!
