Bell Starr’s Silverado Ranch, Arizona – Part 1

Yesterday Mary and I drove the motorhome the about 35 miles from Sierra Vista to Belle Starr’s Silverado Ranch about one-half way between Bisbee and Douglas, Arizona.  The way the crow flies…presumably in a straight line…we are only four miles from Mexico. Bisbee is about 5,500 feet and Douglas is about 4,000 feet in elevation. Being about one-half way between the two…I’m guessing we’re at about 4,750 feet in elevation.The below Google Earth images show our location…

As always you may left click upon an image to see an enlarged view and then click once again to see an even larger view...

Here’s a closer view of the ranch. We’re parked where I’ve marked in yellow…

Looking in from the entrance gate you can see our motorhome in the distance…

Once inside the gate you see this sign…

And the donation box…

A closer view of our parking spot where we have an electrical hookup…

Here’s the view from our dining room window…

This 40 acre unique property is owned by an 85-year-old woman every bit as unique as the property she owns.

I’m going to save telling you and showing pictures of her and her unique property for a very near future Blog. Enough for now…
