The earth’s feet are my feet,
The earth’s hands are my hands,
The earth’s face is my face, and
The earth’s thoughts are my thoughts.

This is a first. . .a letter from me, David! I guess its about time after 16 years of Aravaipa Canyon Ranch operations.
First, I want to express my gratitude to those of you who have supported the Ranch by your presence. We’ve been “blessed by the best of guests”. I’ve frequently marveled at how the right folks have found their way to the Ranch. And, as many of you have shared with me, the land has rewarded you for your presence.
Secondly, I want to share some new developments:
Again, my sincere appreciation for all of your support over the years. When I started this endeavor in 2002, I had no idea the power of this land and the incredible experiences that lie in store for guests. I continue to be in awe of this place, and I am humbled and honored to be the holder/protector/caretaker of this special place. . . and to be friends with the wonderful folks who have blessed this land with their presence. David
