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
Man, next time we gotta get all the way to the tunnel and get some spooky shots!ReplyDelete

Haha, yeah it does look like you're in the middle of nowhere! Not a good place to lose your ride. :)ReplyDelete
Hee Hee! Hiya Sis-tah! Chase that crazy red-headed woman down! Speaking of red-heads...I see you are and have both been "red" for some time. I have actually been a very dark red-head before....I'm thinking of doing it again come fall! Hey, I need to match when I finally drag my but out west to visit!ReplyDelete
Justine, yep on that long and winding road. This one actually lead to an awesome tunnel but it was too hot to hike down to it. We will hike there when it is cooler outside.ReplyDelete
Tara, I do have red in my hair. No matter what color I dye it, the red comes out. Now I just dye it different shade of reddish/blonde/brown.
