The Double RL Ranch by Guy Schmickle
The Double RL Ranch is a 17,000 acre working ranch owned by Ralph Lauren in southwest Colorado. This huge property has some of the best views one could ever imagine of rugged Mt. Sneffels and its namesake range. Fortunately, there is a public county road (CR 9) that bisects the ranch and allows anyone to drive through it and take in the views (just don’t wander off the road…they don’t take kindly to it, understandably). I was surprised to see a number of hay bales still present in the fields during the height of fall colors (usually they collect them earlier), so I couldn’t resist snapping a picture of the scene. Mt. Sneffels is on the far right.
