The Spa At Rock Creek
Rock Creek Cattle Company holds a special place in my heart. Nestled in the mountains of Montana near Deer Lodge, is our favorite vacation spot. This time, we invited our dear friends Mark and Corey from Virginia Beach. We were surprised when our cousin, Jon, flew out from San Fran to join us. As we always do at Rock Creek, we spent the hours outdoors, fishing, hiking, swimming, playing golf and of course, riding horses. Rock Creek is a working cattle ranch. The dusty road off the main highway, RT90, takes you 7 miles beyond civilization, winding past herds of black angus and long horn, slightly visible through the thick blanket of dust kicked up by the tires of our rental car. It's the ranch that I have documented cowboys, cowgirls and ranch horses doing what they do and loving every minute. Rock Creek is also a private resort with an upscale feeling of the old west. One afternoon, we met up with two young wranglers for a leisurely horse ride on the ridge tops. I left my camera behind, so I could take in the views and be present in the moment. On our trip back down, we came upon a random stock tank. The photographer in me went wild. I had a vision!
I love cowboys and cow horses, old western movies and western art. Slightly inspired by Beth Dutton, a character from the hit series Yellowstone (Montana), I had the vision, and all the key components for a fun photo shoot. We made it happen!
We also created a memory the will last a life time. Here's to good friends, and cowgirls.
