Roughing it in luxury

Where the CEOs Roam
In rural Utah sits a massive luxury gated community
By NANCY KEATES
Woodland, Utah
Deep in cattle country sits a gated community the size of Manhattan, where a small number of wealthy home owners can enjoy the feeling of living in the middle of nowhere—except for the 24-hour security, parties and cellphone access.
That's the concept behind Wolf Creek Ranch, a 14,000-acre development carved up into just 84 lots of 160 acres apiece, making the lots roughly 10 times larger than most gated resort communities. An hour from Salt Lake City and about 20 minutes from the Deer Valley and Park City ski resorts, Wolf Creek positions itself as a "private national park"—a compromise between traditional luxury developments with all the amenities and mega sized stand-alone ranches.

Didn't the Yellowstone Club file for bankruptcy protection?

I guess on a more affordable scale, there's "glamping" which is luxury camping that's already been set up by others with the cooking done by others. I'm not talking tent cabins.

13,000 square foot log home? Yeh, that's roughing it in the olde wilderness along with paved roads running right up to those docile moose.
