sevierSevier Valley is located just south of Little Denmark.  Here heritage is tied to the rich landscape where farmers and ranchers follow the ancient Native American tradition of living off the land.  Whether you are visiting Burns Saddlery in Salina where cowboys have shopped for saddles, boots and Western wear for 100 years, listening to the bark of the auctioneer at a local livestock auction, sitting around a campfire after a Dutch oven dinner enjoying tales of Butch Cassidy or licking an ice cream cone at Ideal Dairy in Richfield, you will never be far from the land these rural folk love and nurture.
