Really, if you look hard enough in this photo you can see the right curve warning sign, honest! Better yet, in this photo you can see the actual road to take on the left! Yes, it's dirt. Welcome to the country!
  • You are on Alkali Creek Road! ~1.5 miles to the "B" pin.
  • Please call us when you get on the dirt Road. You will lose cell reception once you are off the mesa and that way we will know when to expect you. Think Safety First!

You'll wander up a Mesa and drop around a curve into a drainage. The road will look like it splits, but that's not real. Bear right through the open gate. You are on Ranch Alacrity! Climb the switchbacks to the T in the Road. 
  • Turn Left at the T. There is a very small sign at the T that says 802 - that's our official address.
  • When you get to the "B" pin bear left and come on HOME.
    Log Cabin with the Green Roof. 
  • When the dogs come out to meet you, don't stop. Keep rolling along slowly. They know to get out of the way.

  • Come past the Cabin and park on the right. Open your door immediately so the dogs don't jump up on your vehicle.
