Old-fashioned dude ranches are attracting a new breed of city slickers looking to unplug from modern life, says Gavin Ehringer, author of 100 Best Guest Ranch Vacations in North America (GPP Travel, $17.95). But now they've expanded their offerings. "Common activities include yoga and fitness classes, mountain biking, spas, river rafting, and special packages just for women." He shares some favorite ranches with Larry Bleiberg for USA TODAY.
