In the late 60’s when we were planning our Tucson, Arizona home, we visited La Posta Quemada Ranch near Vail Arizona which was for sale at the time and only 10 minutes from our land. The price was so reasonable for all the acreage offered and the home was just what we wanted, but on teacher salaries it was way beyond our reach. We did, however, use ideas from that Spanish hacienda style ranch when we built our own hacienda.
La Posta Quemada Ranch is now part of Colossal Cave Mountain Park and is the place from which trail rides can be taken into the scenic and unspoiled foothills of the Rincon Mountains following the National Mail Stagecoach route. Of all the horseback riding facilities in our area, this one offers the most scenic rides for guests when they visit our Bed & Breakfast accommodations.
