Kanye West Buys Bighorn Mountain Ranch Near Greybull, Wyoming [VIDEO]
Kanye West has purchased another ranch in Wyoming. The hip hop artist and reality television star reportedly paid $14.5 million for the Bighorn Mountain Ranch near the towns of Shell and Greybull, according to TMZ.
Kanye's latest acquisition lies on 6,713 acres in Big Horn County, eighty miles east of Cody and eighty miles west of Sheridan. The historic ranch was originally settled in 1906 and recently hit the market for the first time. Earlier this year, West bought the Monster Lake Ranch outside of Cody, where he plans to build an outdoor amphitheater and a factory for his clothing line, Yeezy.
There are several cabins on the Bighorn Mountain Ranch, including the Lodge at Bald Ridge, a five-bedroom, four-bathroom log cabin with a commercial kitchen, a wrap-around deck, and a large fireplace. Three additional guest cabins and a bunkhouse are located at the Upper Hideout. The ranch also includes the Snowshoe Lodge and Cabins, which feature a three-story main lodge, three small cabins, a walk-in sauna, and a large garage near the main entrance. The recently restored Calcam cabin was the original structure on the ranch, which also boasts two heated helicopter pads.
Surrounded by BLM and National Forest land, the ranch and adjacent land cover more than 20 square miles. Nearly 2,000 elk live on the ranch and on the surrounding public land, along with several species of deer, sage grouse, and partridge. The property features two natural creeks, White Creek and Shell Creek, and several springs.
