The Many Hats of Mr. Roger

Mr. Roger has worn many hats in his storied life. He now wears many hats at Riverview Ranch and Resort. There is way too much to do around here for just one Roger.

Welcome to Mr. Roger's Ranch and Resort.
Won't you be our neighbor?

Roger and Mom
Here is a picture of 8 year old Roger with the person he has always wanted to be. His Mother, Elinor G. Burton, the sweetest, most loving, and caring person he has ever met. The strongest, and hardest working person he has ever known. Her smile never left her heart or Roger's memory. Isn't she the prettiest Mom anyone could try to emulate?

Redneck Roger maintains, operates, and modifies all the equipment on the ranch. He gets odd pleasure out of digging in the dirt and tearing things up with his skid steer and his 1967 International Harvester Farmall 706 tractor. You will also see him fixing fences, tossing bales of hay, or fixing something the horses just broke.

Petting Farm
Riverboat Roger is around during summer months to help folks launch on the river in our canoe or kayaks. If you ask him to help around the ranch he always seems to have just stepped on a pop top or "can't help right now" because he is "looking for his shaker of salt," but he is always up for a boat ride. He normally winters in Florida.

Petting Farm
Roger That! likes to spend his time playing guitar, singing, and telling stories around campfires. He never gets anything done, but he is a fun-loving fella who will play, sing, and tell stories for guests if he is asked.

Hear his repertoire at www.RogerThat.Live .

Grizzly Roger is a gentle man of nature who prefers peace, humor, charity, and love over strife or confrontation. He keeps his smile hidden deep inside. "There are three things all wise men fear: the sea in storm, a night with no moon, and the anger of a gentle man." Patrick Rothfuss, The Wise Man's Fear. The name Roger means "famous spear" or "renowned for his sword". Grizzly Roger is available to give knife and hatchet throwing lessons and to show guests how to chop firewood. Ask Wrangler Roger to schedule a session, and don't be late.
