Welcome to Lochloosa Burns Ranch


It's all about Home.

That’s where we’re all headed, and where we want to be. Wherever it may be.

I was born and raised in (Iowa), just across an imaginary line between there and here. It’s all about having those places where, you just feel it. You can feel something come through, something shining. Takes you away from the world of problems, the world of worry, the world of care.

And for me that little place is a place called Lochloosa.

A place where you can leave all the worries behind for just a few minutes. Get in a boat maybe, sit on the bank watching the sun set on the other side of the lake, take your boat out and drop a hook over the side…. You don’t even care if it’s baited at that point. Maybe get an ice-cold beverage of choice, and forget about all the stuff you’ve gotta deal with when you leave there. When you find that place you hold on to it.

Somebody told me “Well, you just go there to escape reality!” I thought about it for a moment, believing that maybe I do go there to escape reality.

Then I thought about it a little longer and it came to me.

I go there to get back to reality. To get away from all these problems that I invent.

So long live places like Lochloosa! If you’ve got it, you hold it, and feel it every chance you get.
