I thought I was half crazy until I hung out with Butch for a couple of days and I realized I was sane after all. We had a great time around Lake Tahoe and on a jaunt from the north shore down to the south shore to gamble for the day.
The Ponderosa Ranch was open as a tourist attraction from 1967 until 2004. It is now closed. This is a link to a site containing photos of the Cartrights filmed at the ranch and surrounding areas: http://ponderosascenery.homestead.com/ponderosa.html
