Part Three ~ El Portal Sedona ~ Summer Vacation Ideas
Time for some good old Western fun! At the M Diamond Ranch, you can spend an hour or the day “ranching.” The ranch is an easy 30 minutes from El Portal, just 6 miles, the other side of I 17. There you can go for horseback rides, cookouts, wagon rides, and more. Their “Ranch Adventure Day” is particularly suited for families with children. You go from your horseback and wagon ride, then served a real Dutch Oven cowboy breakfast! Mountain Man casserole (eggs, sausage, cheese, potatoes), Dutch Oven homemade biscuits with local honey, fruit, juice and coffee. There’s hay baling, horseshoes and special activities for the pint-sized ones.
“Ranch Rendezvous” is an adventure lasting into the evening. Instead of breakfast, after your rides, you are treated to a sunset cookout. Mesquite grilled steaks, cowboy beans, vegetable, cornbread, salad and Dutch Oven cobbler, drinks include water, lemonade and iced tea (you are welcome to BYOB). To complete the fun there’s cowboy entertainment by Alvie Self (member of Rockabilly Hall of Fame).
The M Diamond offers different packages for different tastes. They even have a “Paddle and Saddle” trip! For your Western experience, call El Portal at 1-800-313-0017, we can help you get your Sedona Arizona Vacation started right away!
