There are some mind-blowing properties available in Wyoming. If you desire to live near the Tetons and become a rancher, this incredible property may be what you want.

The Elk Range Ranch is located just outside Alta, Wyoming, near the Wyoming/ Idaho border and a 45-minute drive from the Jackson Hole area. If you're the person who can shell out $13.9 million for this 80-acre ranch, we should be friends. I would gladly stay in one of your two houses and help you on the ranch. We could hunt the elk, mule deer, and whitetail deer that roam on your ground. Honestly, if you need a friend, I'm your guy. If not, I guess we can all daydream about this fantastic property.

Here are some points of interest from the Real Estate website about the property. Reading these may excite you about investing in a piece of Wyoming and becoming my new best friend.
