    Because our Ranch is in the country, helpers with no car will be needing us to provide transport to nearby Hinton, where we go at least twice a week. Helpers interested in horseback riding will be taken to a nearby ranch for a chance to do that. Trips into Jasper are provided at least once a month. We frequently hike on our trails and welcome helpers to come along, or to go to a nearby lake for swimming.
