last night, we were really tired and stinky from days in the desert and not even a stream to clean up in. We stopped at a gas station to find a place to stay (zero cell service) and they suggested the May Family Ranch. We...More

Thanks ever so much for your sweet comments. I try not to allow criticism to effect me, but I have to admit it surely feels wonderful when I read something like you submitted. I love the Lodge where you stayed. It's even better now....Paul made...More

Thanks for your comments. I'm sorry your stay wasn't 100% perfect. I try to be on the ball all of the time, but I guess I fail at times. Obviously didn't impress you very well....and that makes me sad. I don't remember your stay, and...More
