Goodbye June, Hello July - Week 5

Summer 2018 - Week 3 end to yet another great week here at BMR! This was our last adult only week until fall and we couldn't have asked for a better group. We were able to bring in wonderful old friends and made new ones to last. Heck, we even connected with some awesome gals who came all the way across the Big Pond from England to experience The US in an authentic western way. A highlight to the week was the kickoff to the Steamboat Rodeo and we're looking forward to a good summer up there. With great ...
