Had read the couple of reviews here on Tripadvisor and on our way from Albuquerque to Santa Fe and exited at Exit 271 & found the ranch.
We truly lucked out that the owner, Imogene Hughes, was driving out of the ranch & talked to her--what a lovely lady! We set up a tour for a few days from then and drove back to the same entrance gate again.
While waiting, another couple drove up & were also going to join us on the tour. What a fantastic, interesting area! Our guide was Jack and he had been in several movies as an extra. He knew so many actors/actresses!
Had fun taking pictures of so many recognizable scenes and they came out really nice.
If you are in the area & have time, it was a travel experience you'd love if you enjoy movies. Seeing and hearing about the sets, how production runs, etc. was amazing!
