Wyoming — vacationer’s paradise? You bet, if you’re staying at Brush Creek Ranch in the town of Saratoga. Set in the gorgeous Sierra Madre and Snowy Mountain ranges, it’s a luxury resort like no other. Where else could you unwind in a first-class spa located in a traditional outdoor teepee? Or explore the Great Outdoors — boosted by a dash of Wild West bravura — with unparalleled fly-fishing, mountain-biking, archery, horseback-riding and cattle-drive adventures? You can let your inner kid out, too, with ziplines and paintball courses and then, at night, indulge your epicurean side with campfire fine dining or an outdoor BBQ complete with live bluegrass music. A bit of warning though: Should you decide to spend the night at Brush Creek Ranch’s high mountain yurts, you’ll never be able to camp quite the same again. Because, here, the tent experience includes a chandelier-lit 700-square-foot space, plush leather sofas (yes, plural), a fireplace and gourmet meals, specially prepared by the resident chef. But, then, being spoiled like this isn’t such a bad thing, is it?
