2/6 Little Dog jumps ditch at former Daniels Ranch on Rio Grande
Near Rio Grande Village, nowadays basically a campers and hikers trading post, pioneer Daniels created an oasis in the otherwise dry environment. He and his people installed a pump and dug ditches to create fertile grounds for farming, raising crops of corn and even green vegetables. Now the farm is deserted, all that remains is a small rock building and a watering system that have helped trees grow to heights seldom seen in the desert.
