Oakley Cattle Drive: A Western Tradition

What makes the American west the “West” as the world knows it? Is it the great stretches of blue skies, sweeping and diverse landscapes, or the history of cowboys and native americans? I think it’s a combination of all of those things. There is plenty of space for both new and old traditions. One tradition that is undeniably a truly “western” experience is a cattle drive, a unique part of our heritage and history in Utah. Summit County is lucky to be the home of traditional cattle drives for working ranches. I had the chance to join the Leavitt family for their annual cattle drive, and it was an adventure not to be forgotten!

Lucky for us, the outdoor markets throughout Park City make it possible to have it all! You can have your “bacon and eggs” while enjoying a view like none other.
