Utilities haven’t been extended this far off the highway yet, but power lines are about 3,000 feet from the property line and water lines are a little over a mile to the south. Mobile data service is excellent through the major wireless carriers and Starlink is also available.

Downtown Holbrook AZ, just 13 miles away, is a town of about 5000 people, rich with history. The Holbrook area was inhabited first by the Anasazi, then Puebloans, then the Navajo and Apache. In 1540, Coronado searched for the Seven Cities of Cibola and camped some sixty miles east of Holbrook. Coronado sent an expedition west to find the Colorado River, and they crossed the Little Colorado about twenty-five miles east of Holbrook and found a wonderland of colors they named “El Desierto Pintada” – The Painted Desert.
