Lazy LW Ranch

Aliases: Wilson Ranch

Nestled in the sandhills northwest of Wray, the Lazy LW offers hiking and birding among the sandsage in Greater Prairie-Chicken country. The Wilsons have a Greater Prairie-Chicken lek on their property and have developed a grazing system to encourage nesting. The shelterbelts around the homestead offer good birding and are a reliable spot for Loggerhead Shrike and Northern Bobwhite. To schedule a lek viewing or go birdwatching/hiking, please call Dee Wilson at (970) 630-7235.
