HARDWARE RANCH

My friend Rachel called me up this morning to join her on a spontaneous trip to Hardware Ranch.
 When you reach the area in Hyrum, UT, you can go to the visitor's center for a great view from inside with the all glass front room and magnifying viewer.
 Tickets are for sale for a wagon ride to check out the Rocky Mountain Elk in the area. The elk come to this part of Utah in the winter when the snow pushes them to lower ground. They are migrating in search of food.
This Wildlife Area grows it's own grass hay each summer to feed these animals.
 Tickets for the wagon rides are priced at $5 for adults and $3 for children over the age of three.
You ride out in between these animals. They don't budge much when the wagons go by them. 
 This area estimates that 500-600 elk come into this area each year. 
This experience is super cool for those who love wildlife and the outdoors.
 You don't have to ride the wagon, but I would recommend it.
 Check their website for visiting days and hours and how to plan your trip.
