The M Bar J Guest Ranch in Badger, California.

As people move to urban areas and have less leisure time, as well as vacation differently than in the past, rural areas are fading. Some time ago I posted about the Shasta Ranch, yet little information is available on that place.

The M-J Guest Ranch was purchased in 1969 by Archie Stockebrand, a retired Navy test pilot. They ran the ranch for 25 years and retired in the Badger Area, and shots of the ranch and especially the pool are in this memorial video. What happened to the ranch after their retirement is not discernible to the general public.






Last week while driving to scout access to a river, I passed by the M-J Guest Ranch. I'd noticed it years before, yet now the abandonment is visible and curiosity beckons.
