Hello April! We are so happy you are here and excited that we are one month closer to the start of our 2017 season! We are keeping our fingers crossed that winter is officially behind us – but in Wyoming, and especially in Sunlight Basin, you really never can be sure! We have been doing […]
Springtime snow melt!
So it may not look like it from the pictures, but the difference in the amount of snow up at the ranch is HUGE! I am up there every week, and every time, it is like a new 7D. It’s still a little muddy and messy, but it’s so nice to actually be able to […]
Springtime is upon us!
As we chug along here in Cody and up in Sunlight Basin – I’m doing my best to keep you all updated on a more regular basis through our blog! Feedback/comments are always welcome and appreciated – we love to hear from you! It feels like the time change from the past weekend is one […]
March 2017 – Howdy from Cody!
Hello from the 7D Winter Office in Cody! The days are finally getting longer here in Cody, but the weather can’t seem to make up its mind between winter and spring – it’s definitely been an interesting combination of both seasons over the last week or so! We are in full swing preparing […]
August 2016 – First Snow on Windy
Autumn is coming to the Basin. You can tell by the fireweed surging through the tall grass, the ice coating the bridges over the spring in the morning, and the need for fresh coffee every afternoon when the guests return from their adventures.

December 2015 – Hauling Horses
As the days get shorter and colder; as the wind picks up and it starts to snow, we know that it is time to move the horses to town from the ranch. Before Wyoming Highway 296, or the Chief Joseph Highway, was paved, the ranch used to run a two day horse drive, all the […]
November 2015 – Fall Wildlife
This time of year, wildlife begins to take advantage of the limited human presence on the ranch. White-tailed deer start to graze on our lawns, claiming them as their fall pasture. A small family of moose has also moved back in, the pond up by the shop is their territory. Luckily we have not had […]
We have finally wrapped up another very successful and fun season at the 7D! Andrea, Meade, and I are starting to exhale, relax, and look back on the summer. One thing we have not done in a while is add to the blog on our website. We do not have any major projects lined up […]
The Final Countdown
Hard to believe but we are beginning our last guest week of the season at the 7D. Looking back, the time seems to have rushed by. We hope to have offered a wonderful season for both guests and staff. This week we are enjoying a number of returning guests who know Sunlight Basin and the […]
Fall is coming on
We awakened this morning to the cacophony of coyotes singing, dogs barking, horses whinnying and wranglers urging the herds in to the corrals. The sound of the coyotes’ singing as they head out to hunt in the evening and as they return in the early morning reminds us that we live in the wilderness and […]
