Our First Rain Of The Season!

Last year we didn't get any substantial rain until January, so we're all happy with the early rains. Hopefully, this will mean a banner year for flowers as well. I was able to get out early in the morning before the rain and then later, after the rains, to catch some wonderful clouds. Now, if it would clear up so we can bike!

Take The Keys Ranch Tour While You're Here.

"The ranger-guided tour of the ranch includes the colorful story of the 60 years Bill and Frances spent working together to make a life and raise their five children in this remote location. The ranch house, school house, store, and workshop still stand; the orchard has been replanted; and the grounds are full of the cars, trucks, mining equipment, and spare parts that are a part of the Desert Queen Ranch story." There you have it in a nutshell. We always take friends on the tour and they love it. It really gives you a sense of what life used to be like in these 'here' parts. Call 760-367-5555 for information. The Ranger led tours are held from October to May at 10 and 1 p.m. The cost is 5.00 per person. Don't miss it!
