Had planned to go there several years ago, and glad we finally made it. The barn collection of artifacts is excellent - especially all of the intact pots. The petrified wood collection in the yard( brought here years ago) is nicely displaced. The ranch is...More

A surprising little canyon with some nice petroglyphs. The experience will be more enjoyable if you visit in cooler weather as it can be quite hot in the summer. Even though the site is not very large, it is interesting.

Some of the best pots I have ever seen and the sweat lodge and petroglyphs will blow you away. The old cowboy does not do the tours anymore, but his grand daughter is very knowledgeable and excellent. June was kinda hot, though.

We had a bit of a windy day so didn't get out as much as we hoped. Towards evening the wind went down and we hiked quite a bit. Road horses the next morning and that was very exciting.
