Dude ranches were popular vacation resorts in the mid to 20th-century that allowed visitors to experience "the original western vacation." This once popular ranch in the state of Wyoming closed in 1985. Situated within Grand Teton National Park, the ranch was in danger of falling into ruing as the National Park Service lacked the funds for upkeep and maintenance. Now, a new program will preserve the ranch while teaching preservation.
