There’s a tale to tell that ends with a night gathering of  friends under clear desert skies & a crackling fire. We are here to celebrate a friend’s leap year birthday.  This weekend  was chosen to round up the RV’s and head out to   Triangle T Guest Ranch.

Triangle T is surrounded by rock formations that conjur up images of wild west  hideouts & cattle rustling.  Some of the rocks seem to defy gravity…img_6032

There’s horseback riding or you can bring your own horse.  Great riding trails, very little cactus.

There are little surprises all around the ranch.  Likethe rock maze below.

Moseying down the dusty trail we stumble upon  an  old movie set from 1957 – the original 310 To Yuma.

There is just too much to explore around this ranch. Bonus the Amerind Foundation Museum is within walking distance.   The hiking is spectacular:

I wrote about The Rock Saloon before here: Corny Shenanigans . This time there was live music and some boot scootin’.
