For this field experience, students were split into groups to venture the Rock Ledge Ranch, located in Garden of the Gods! We were greeted by multiple tour guides who shared how they lived on the ranch and what their responsibilities have been since the ranch was built. They have a full farm with a highly experienced cattle hand who takes care of the animals and the grounds. They even make their own cream, milk, and cheese!
There is a blacksmith on site that builds various tools, brands, etc, for the ranch. For our presentations, he made each group a decorative hook! He burned the metal, shaped it, and explained what blacksmiths do. It was very neat!
The grounds are well-kept with open fields and green grass. The trails are large, and there's even a place in the barn to cuddle with baby chicks!
