"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!
