Shady Lane @ Ucross on a Shady Day

Just a few miles east of Sheridan at 2611 US Highway 14 is Shady Lane - a place local historian Billie Little calls her favorite 'tree lined drive' as she talks about what it must have been like to haul water in barrels by horse and wagon from the creek to start these cottonwoods 100-years ago. The property at Shady Lane has changed hands several times over the past few years and was repurchased by Apache (a gas, oil, land & cattle investor program) in 2004. In 2005, Apache Foundation leased the ranch land from the Ucross Foundation, allowing the range of hunting, ranching and recreational opportunities available to the guests of the Shady Lane Lodge at Ucross. Most of the property remains as a working cattle ranch in an agreement with Bauer Land and Livestock Company.
