26 Bar Ranch (John Wayne Ranch)
Immersed in the Hereford’s history in Eagar, AZ, sits the 26 Bar Ranch. It was first known as the Milky Way Ranch in the 1940’s with its big white show barn which housed many Hereford cattle. The barn is now a local landmark. In 1964 the ranch became the 26 Bar Ranch or John Wayne’s Ranch, who was one of the owners. Wayne, along with Ken Reafsnyder and Louis Johnson, his business partners, kept the ranch until John Wayne’s death in 1979 from lung and stomach cancer. Lately, I have heard rumors that Bigfoot has been seen near the ranch. I don’t know if that is true or not, but it would be worth checking out. John Wayne and Louis Johnson

Lost.In.Idaho; thanks sweetie! I think is it a nice one too.ReplyDelete
Red Shoes; Yes I did. I took them at Vulture Mine, AZ.
Why thank you MM.ReplyDelete
You have an amazing eye. How do you find these places?ReplyDelete
Just awesome. Man it makes me smile! Can't wait to get back to Vulture Mine for a nighttime hunt!ReplyDelete
Especially love that first shirt. Looks like Al Capone's guys whacked someone in the desert and broke down on the way back...ReplyDelete
Jessica; some I see on TV, or Sharon tells me about them, or I already know of their existance. I am finally getting out and seeing them for myself. Lots of great stuff just lying around in the desert.ReplyDelete
Sis; looking forward to that midnight hunt there too. That place gave me chills in the daytime, can you imagine what it feels like there at night.... muhahaha!
BL; that is what I love so much about that car. I looks like the gangsters didn't do well in the desert.
These photos look like they would have been taken in a place called Vulture Mine! :) The first shot almost looks like a coach, it's so old. Neat find!ReplyDelete
Justine; yes they were taken at Vulture Mine. That place has lots of great photo opportunities for expert or even amateur photographers such as myself who just wants to get better at taking great pictures.ReplyDelete
