2. The ranch is located adjacent to Wupatki National Monument and seven miles east of Sunset Crater Volcano National Monument.  Wupatki is rich in Native American ruins built by the Ancient Pueblo People of the Cohonia, Kayenta Anasazi and Sinagua.  Both National Monuments are popular tourist attractions on the way to the Grand Canyon. The ranch adjoins the Navajo Indian Reservation on its eastern boundary.

3. The ranch has scenic and majestic views of the San Francisco Peaks to the west and the Painted Desert to the east.

4. The ranch is located in one of the most popular areas of Arizona.
