When you've achieved success and fame in your life and have the ability to live anywhere, where would you go? The late Wilford Brimley who achieved fame in Hollywood chose a ranch near Greybull and Shell, Wyoming and there are pictures showing what his life there was like.

We lost Wilford Brimley in August of 2020. He gained fame from the movie The Natural with Robert Redford along with numerous TV appearances. You might remember that he portrayed a blacksmith on the Kung Fu TV series in 1975. That was appropriate as Wilford had his own blacksmith shop on his Wyoming ranch. Here are some pictures from the ranch when it was listed for sale back in 2014 as reported by Lohud.
