The Teepee Heart Ranch, Km 84 – Imagine a small, secret and wild valley, hidden in the heart of the Chilcotin Mountains in the West of Canada. It’s Native American country. Now, imagine that you are going along the 84 kilometers of track which lead, across barren hills, canyons and pine forests to this valley. Along the way, you may well see some bald eagles, black bears and wild mustangs. You have arrived! The wooden gates to the ranch are opening in front of you. Wood, light and magic are the raw materials here.
The ranch holds the secret to the marriage of tradition and innovation. The old barn reminds us of the historic heritage of this ranch straight out of the Far West, dried pin-wood logs crackling in the stoves, the spirit of the Last Frontier is still here. As for the new barn, it bears testimony to the vitality of this lifestyle with its solar panels and the satellite aerial which give us a welcome. Nevertheless, we believe that a renewed approach to the rancher’s life true modernity which implies understanding of the indigenous vision, cohabiting with the local wildlife and, of course, cooperating with the horses.
