At the Resort At Paws Up, a luxury ranch resort that sprawls across 37,000 acres of bucolic Montana countryside, my cowboy butler eases the discomforts of wilderness. He fills my canteen with inebriates, turns down my fit-for-a-princess king bed, makes sure my outdoor activity dance card is filled for tomorrow, and brings me the fixings for sinful s’mores artfully arranged on a silver platter. When I admit languor after a day sorting out cows on an exhilarating cattle drive, he tells me to sit a spell. And then, heck, he melts my marshmallows for me.
Hey, y’all. This ain’t your granddaddy’s ranch.
