Mother Nature was definitely letting everyone know she has various moods! At 9am when the Ranch opened, the heavens opened with sleet and rain. During this wild weather, eight little blight resistant fruit trees were added to Orchard by Andy Morris, John Winters and Chris Alvarez. Funds to purchase these trees were donated by the Broadmoor Garden Club. The wind blew and everyone shivered! In addition, the area by the Toba Trees was cleaned up by volunteers, led by Ron Wright.
However, the Orchard House, Carriage House, Rock Ledge House, Galloway Cabin, Blacksmith Shop (with resident blacksmith Andy Morris) and the General Store were all open with docents and activities. People from The Garden of the Gods Visitor’s Center Earth Day displays also came to Rock Ledge Ranch.
At 1pm at the Ranch the Carriage House was alive with Native songs and dance exhibitions presented by the 7 Falls Dancers.
