Hoot Gibson stars in this Western as a cowpuncher on vacation. Of course, Laramie (Gibson) doesn't get too much rest and relaxation at the summer resort he has chosen -- before the end of day one, he meets pretty Jane Sheridan (Marjorie Daw), who needs to be protected from a gang of crooks. Laramie figures he's just the one to do the protecting, but Jane is suspicious of him. So is her miner father (William Welch), when he returns and finds him hanging around his pretty daughter. He sternly orders Laramie to leave. In spite of all this, the determined young cattleman manages to save both Jane and her father from the dire fate that the bad guys have in mind for them. The crooks meet their demise when Laramie sends a huge boulder careening down on their cabin. Jane, finally realizing that she has woefully misunderstood Laramie's attentions, gladly agrees to become his wife, so Laramie's vacation becomes his honeymoon.
