He grew up in Houston, and started writing short stories on his lunch breaks while working as a petroleum geologist in Jackson, Mississippi. In 1987, he moved with his wife, the artist Elizabeth Hughes Bass, to the remote Yaak Valley, where he works to protect his adopted home from roads and logging. Rick serves on the board of both the Yaak Valley Forest Council and Round River Conservation Studies. In 2011 Rick moved from the Yaak area of Montana to Missoula, Montana. He continues to give readings, write, and teach around the country and world. He lives in Montana with his family." rickbass.net

Around the Ranch
This week we hosted one of the most exciting events of the year at Rock Bottom Ranch – the first ever Family Farm Feast with Savour the Mountains and the Oppenheim family. This event was a celebration of local food, healthy eating, and family. We searched the Roaring Fork and North Fork Valleys for the best local food products to bring together for an evening focused on teaching the whole family about where our food come from.
