Red Steagall puts together photographs by David Stoecklein, Bob Moorhouse, and Wyman Meinzer to portray the songs and poems of himself and singers Don Edwards, Jean Prescott, and Dan Roberts. The combination of the music, lyrics, and photographs brings to life the places, people, and animals that contribute to life in the American west. The story of the west is not complicated. The "code of the cow country" is a lesson in honesty, integrity, loyalty, work ethic, dedication to family, conviction about your faith in God, and the practice of common decency. If you practice the "code of the cow country", you can't help but Ride For The Brand.
Ride For The Brand
Good things happen when people get together. This building is a testament to people getting together and creating something. Whether it’s for fun, for business, to sell an idea, to get married or to remember someone, I enjoy matching the many capabilities of Platte Valley Community Center with peoples’ wants and needs.
It is rewarding to help people that live here find the right space to work, play, learn, teach and make art. I also enjoy helping to bring people to this Valley so they can experience the things that connect me to this place: the people, the schools, the businesses, the year-round outdoor recreation and the open spaces.

The Platte Valley Community Center is located in Saratoga, Wyoming in the heart of the Upper North Platte River Valley. "The Good Times Valley" is a destination with endless opportunities for outdoor recreation and plenty of cultural and historical events that bring people together for good times.
The Upper North Platte River Valley lies in between the Snowy Range and Sierra Madre Mountain Range in southern Wyoming and is spread along the confluence of the Encampment River and Upper North Platte River. Outdoor enthusiasts enjoy blue ribbon trout fishing, scenic floats, and miles of hiking, mountain biking, ATV, snowmobiling and skiing trails.
The Platte Valley Community Center is within walking distance to a variety of services in Saratoga and just a short drive from Encampment. So it really doesn't matter where you stay. Both communities boast excellent restaurants, comfortable hotels, motels and resorts, and several "must see" attractions.
