Wonderful Experience. What made the experience great was probably the tour which we were lucky to be just in time for. Our tour guide Jim walked us through different parts of the Ranch and almost made everything come alive. The Ranch itself had an exceptionally peaceful and quiet ambiance. Overall highly recommended to take the tour and then walk around the Ranch.
What an interesting guide we had. I sure am glad I live in these modern times. This is the place every school kid should visit with a docent. Wear comfortable walking shoes because there sure is a lot to see. We could have spent twice as much time here.
