1900's Tour of Historic Watering Sources
"It's all about the water"....Plan for an hour and a half guided tour - consists of visiting two historic sites on the ranch:
1900's Cistern - In good condition, this cistern harvested rain water from the original McKenna homestead located along the Dry Devil's River.
The site of the first water harvested from the deep. This is a fascinating tour of the epic discovery and harvest of spring water from 130ft below the surface. You will appreciate the history of the vital need to provide water for the original homesteaders and their successful sheep and goat operation between 1900-1968.
BIRDING: $20 per person
