Are you as excited as I am about the season 5 premiere of Yellowstone tonight? As star-studded as the cast is, it can be hard to tear your eyes away from the ruggedly beautiful Montana landscape in which the show is set.
If you've ever wished you could be part of the TV show's world, but perhaps without the dysfunction and drama of the Dutton family, you're in luck. There are numerous dude ranches in the West where you can get a taste of the latter-day ranching lifestyle. Travel editor Krista Simmons has rounded up a passel of them, and you can read about them here.
So happy trails to you, and happy binge-watching, too.
