There's a deserted horse ranch outside the west entrance to Joshua Tree National Park and since we went in and out of that entrance on Saturday, I had an opportunity to stop and look around. Yup. Want a couple of saddles? Of course, you would have to climb to the top of the posts to get them! The gate to the ranch is locked and there are no horses there and there was no activity...another sad sign of our current economy. Apparently this was once a thriving ranch. I found their website and they did boarding and gave lessons and took people into the park on horseback. Now it sits empty. It's near the little blue house ("Rattlesnake Ranch") and I'll be posting more photos of that later this week.
