Below Colossal Cave there’s other things to see and do in Colossal Cave Mountain Park. Hike, picnic, camp, Ranch, trail rides, field museum, gift shop … and more. We took a quick tour.
Down at La Posta Quemada Ranch we find this awesome sculpture
“The Cowboy” by Buck McCain. It’s almost like finding a Rembrandt
in a barber shop.
THE COWBOY standing 6’8″ high including the a base (32″ x 32.5″) is an edition of 35. He depicts a working cowboy. Dress and gear are authentic reproductions. THE COWBOY stands at the entrance of the Mountain Oyster Club, Tucson, AZ; Evergreen Cementary, Colorado Springs, CO; the Booth Western Art Museum, Cartersville, GA; Colossal Cave Mountain Park, Tucson, AZ; Leanin’ Tree Western Art Musuem, Boulder, CO; the Foss Company, Golden, CO and is found in several private collections.

Booths like this one, were a vital
communication for rail workers and
engineers. They were positioned about
every seven miles. Keeping the booths
operational included ____ing the
glass ____ed wet cell batteries. They had
to be kept filled with oil and battery acid.
This one was recovered form Pantano.
It had to be abandoned during the 1960’s
when the system was modernized
After a hot day of caving we earn a dip in the pool!
