Flying W Ranch

It was a nostalgic evening for a crowd of several hundred people attending a Flying W Wranglers concert at Flying W Ranch.

The Flying W Ranch opened their gates for a crowd of several hundred for a 62nd anniversary performance by their namesakes, the Flying W Wranglers. Bandleader David Bradley belts out a classic cowboy tune while guitariest Adam Gardino (left) and fiddler Luke Tripp (right) play along during a concert on Saturday, June 28, 2014. The Flying W Ranch burned to the ground two years ago in the Waldo Canyon Fire. Bradley not only lost his workplace, but his home in the fire. ONLINE PHOTO GALLERY (The Gazette/Jerilee Bennett)
