Sweet Grass Ranch hosts guests for the summer months, from June through mid-September. This is a spectacular time of the year in Montana, full of sunshine (well, most of the time), wildlife, and wildflowers. Each month has its charm:
At 6,100 feet elevation, June is still our spring. Wildflowers are at their peak and meadows are blue with forget-me-nots. It’s the nesting time of the curlew, baby wildlife abounds, and the land is lush and green. The Big Timber Rodeo makes for an exciting time the last week of June.
During July, guests can help drive cattle to the high mountain pastures, check on bulls and fences, enjoy overnight trips, swim horses in the creek, fish the Sweet Grass Falls, and marvel at a lighting storm.
August days tend to be cloudless with the snow receding on the higher elevations. It’s the perfect time to watch for mountain goats, experience the natural waterslide, or take a trip up canyon to the cool alpine lakes.
The 2012 season runs from June 3 to September 16, and we welcome the opportunity to share it with you!
