Architect’s Journal Entry
BAR BC RANCH – Jackson, Wyoming: Greeted with warm smiles and hardy handshakes, I was recently welcomed as a visiting Architect and well received guest at a Ranch House BBQ hosted by Hillwood; a Perot Company http://www.hillwood.com/ and Sotheby’s International Realty of Jackson, Wyoming http://www.jhsir.com/
To say that I felt at home and amongst friends would be an understatement; this group of top-notch professionals shared in conversation and aspiration as though I had been a valued acquaintance that could be measured in years. But then again the Bar BC is no stranger to camaraderie, laughter and the simple enjoyment of people gathered at a magnificent setting. Fact is…stories of Bar BC Cowboys and Cowboy want-to-be’s began in 1912 and by the 1920’s was known as one of the most famous Dude Ranches in the region.
Embracing a rich heritage and the significant remembrance of place held within the hearts of generations, Hillwood concluded that all ranch improvements would be rooted in stewardship and an absolute appreciation for the land. Roads and trails would blend with natural scenery, scenic overlooks and majestic views. The dual mission would also conserve wildlife corridors, while also providing for private use and enjoyment of this one-of-a-kind setting.
Upon leaving and thanking my hostess for a good time had by all, a small herd of elk was seen grazing in the lush grass found in abundance surrounding a larger pond located interior to this unique community.
