Westerm Ranch in Amazing Landscape

Morning light reflects on canyon walls above the Dugout Ranch in San Juan County near Monticello, Utah. Surrounded by park and public land, the Dugout Ranch is a 5,200 acre prime piece of ranch land owned by the Nature Conservancy.  Ancestral Puebloan rock art and dwellings are found through out the ranch.  The property is used for ecological research, biological management, and natural and cultural history interpretation. It is being maintained as an economically viable and ecologically sustainable cattle ranching operation.
