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
WOW great photos. I am not great with heights but I would totally risk it for that view!ReplyDelete
I remember that view from many years ago. I also took pics on the World Trade Center while I was there. It was eerie to look at them after 9/11.ReplyDelete
Lucky gal--you went on a clear day. Growing up in DC, I think I went there to visit at least once a year--every time totally gray and unable to see the view! Truly an amazing engineering feat. I remember as they were building the Twin Towers, I could see that they were dwarfing the Empire State Building and that was shocking beyond belief. BTW, I love your banner--don't know if I mentioned that. It makes me smile. We are above the norm, aren't we? Or are we just thumbing our nose at the norm? Hmm....More likely, we're saying "there's a norm?"ReplyDelete
wicKED; heights don't bother me as much as tiny little spaces. I start to freak out a little when the thought of being in one.ReplyDelete
Bubba; sadly I never saw the twin towners in person. I just saw the very big hole and damages the following year.
Sis; it was a beautiful day and very windy. We would not feel the wind on one side and then turn the corner and get blasted with it. The view was even more beautiful at night. Thanks, I like the banner too. The sundown picture in Tombstone was perfect for my blog.
Beautiful photos, as always! The empire state is supposed to be haunted too. The ghosts of those who have jumped are said to be there.ReplyDelete
Nice Jessica, it makes the night visits more interesting.ReplyDelete
Great shots and what a gorgeous day. Lucky you. I know a number of people who wouldn't mind the ride up, but would be freaked by the height.ReplyDelete
MM, yeah there are probably many more people afraid of heights and not small spaces. It is just the opposite with me.ReplyDelete
What a beautiful view! I'd be scared to go up there, though. I remember when I went up the Eiffel Tower in an elevator. I don't even have a fear of heights. Not usually, anyway. I was so scared and couldn't wait to get down! There was a problem with the elevator while one of my friends was looking around up there. I remember she had to climb all the way down on a narrow metal staircase! I think she was pretty traumatized by that experience. We were probably as high up as you were at the Empire State Building, judging by the view.ReplyDelete
