CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — A landmark in northeast Wyoming is being protected through a conservation easement agreement.

The Nature Conservancy in Wyoming and Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation are joining to conserve about 2,100 acres of the HF Bar Ranch.

The ranch is said to be the second oldest guest ranch in the country and supports a family business, working ranchlands and critical wildlife habitat.

The HF Bar Ranch is located along the face of the Big Horn Range about 15 miles from Buffalo.

It is home to elk, mule deer, whitetail deer, mountain lions and antelope.
