At the Main Lodge with Guests
Mountain View Ranch

    In 1929, Happy Ley came to the Cowles area looking for a job.  He worked at Mountain View Ranch, Los Pinos Guest Ranch and the Cresta de Monte Girls School on Grass Mountain.  Happy was well liked and was always in demand as a wrangler and cowboy.  Happy and his wife, Delfina, bought the Tererro Store (about 4 miles south of Cowles), which is now operated by his son, Huie.

    In this photograph, left to right:  Matie Viles and Happy Ley are with the horses and a group of guests.  Skipper Viles is the third person leaning against the porch and, as was usually the case, wearing his very distinctive hat.
