Wow! What a delightful surprise. Rent a 4x4 and go in the back country. We were on our way to the Barker ranch when we came across this place. The Spring IS WARM! There's an old residence with guest rooms and other types of buildings from decades ago that's been abandoned with a swimming pool. There are Mines all around... More
