We decided to visit this place after our trip to the Grand Canyon. Our party or three consisted my my daughter (15), Sister (55), myself (50).
This trip was made up of two parts.
You first meet up at a specific time (need reservations) at his ranch. He has hundreds of relics. Some regarding the native Indians, some of the old stage coaches and furniture that came from his family, and still other areas were set up like the old west with a blacksmith's shop and old farming equipment. It was like a museum out in the middle of a desert. We took about 2+ hours to see this part and listen to his stories.
The second part of the trip consisted of a drive out to the area that he has set up to view the petroglyphs. On the way there we stopped off at another area that had original mud huts and pottery that dated back hundreds of years ago. You could actually imagine what it must have been like like living there.
However, Let me back up. To begin with, it is out of the way. Once you turn off the main road you will drive another 20 - 30 minutes and never see another car or person. You might see his herd of buffalo if you are lucky. You knew you were heading towards an adventure before you got there.
Once you actually make it out to the site of the Petroglyphs, there is a large shade structure that blocks the wind on two sides and has picnic tables for your use. Great place if you actually brought a picnic. From there you walk down several flights of stairs (about 50') to get down to the canyon area to see the petroglyphs. There is a little river that wines through the middle of it. It is incredibly unique and we had a great time exploring.
The adults (who enjoy this type of adventure and history) had a great time. My teenage daughter was not as enthusiastic about the hours of history lessons. She put up with us older folk but this might not have been one of her top three adventures.
