Scout’s Rest Ranch

The flamboyance! The theatre! The wallpaper! The off-season home and entertaining epicenter of Co. Cody’s life was quite a fabulous place. A larger-than-life Italianate house for a larger-than-life character. It’s fascinating to see history preserved, from the gouges in the walls of the stables, to the trophies, to the tufted velvet settees. Once again, I thought of the Western European extraction traipsing about this swath of land. Of the romance inherent in danger; no matter how civilized we become, there is still a sub-petticoat arousal at the thought of the hunt.
