It's a proven fact that stress is a killer. Doctors tell us it's the Number One cause behind most medical complaints. So what are you doing to relieve yours? As an antidote to their own deadline-induced rigor, Cowboys & Indians editors searched out seven different places in the West where you are sure to find relaxation. So make your reservations now: doctor's orders!
Less than a decade has passed since the arduous and meticulous restoration of Cibolo Creek Ranch. This West Texas retreat recently gained two new sets of suites to accommodate an overflow of eager guests. The 19th-century fiefdom of cattle baron Milton Faver can be found less than an hour north of the Rio Grande. Cultural flair and historic authenticity permeate the property and its three fortresses. Horseback riders have 25,000 acres over which to roam, and birders and shutterbugs have boundless wildlife to pursue. Stay on the ranch or venture off to one of the many rugged state and national parks found throughout the Big Bend country.
