U Lazy U Ranch

Almost two miles of the Snake River run through the U Lazy U Ranch, and supports incredibly diverse ecological zones including extensive riparian habitat, cottonwood forests, and open sedge and grass meadows. The converging habitats of the property are crucial to a variety of wildlife species, including elk, mule deer, moose, nesting bald eagles, cutthroat trout, and trumpeter swans – the largest waterfowl in North America.
