Valley Ranch and the Yellowstone Backcountry: Recounting the Annual Pack Trips from Larry Larom’s Wyoming Dude Ranch
With Brian Beauvais
Join us the second Thursdays of the months of January through April for Cody Culture Club. Appetizers and cash bar at every program. If you love Cody, you’re part of the Club!
For more than four decades, Larry Larom organized annual summer pack trips for the children of his well-to-do Eastern dude clientele from Valley Ranch on the upper South Fork. These excursions were often longer than five weeks and posed interesting logistical challenges. Well-documented in a collection of photographic scrapbooks, the pack trips provide a wonderful opportunity to address how tourism regularly reached the remotest sections of Yellowstone National Park. Park County Archives Curator Brian Beauvais uses historic photographs to recount these trips.
