Roadrunners, jackrabbits, hawks, deer, wild turkey or possibly javelinas all call this canyon their home. Take in some of the most stunning star-filled night skies ever imagined.

Enjoy the easy pace of a hot summer day on the ranch as you wander the compound and acquaint yourself with the horses. Look for any one of the hundreds of breeds of birds who call the Gila High Desert home as you challenge the summit of Turtle Rock or explore the canyons of the Double E Ranch. Trace the path of the Mimbres Indians who lived along Bear Creek and the Gila River 1300 years ago. Uncover their history through pottery pieces, ancient tools, pictographs and remnants of stone dwellings which can still be readily found along Bear Creek.
