W Dart Ranch – AZ. Great Ranches of the West

“The ranch holdings that the Grosetas have acquired over the years are beautiful, with miles of the Verde River and meandering streams, rocky foothills, and elevations up to 6,000 feet. And yet the W Dart is just an hour-and-a-half drive from Phoenix. This proximity to the burgeoning population of northern Arizona has brought unsettling problems to the Grosetas. Determined vandals steal heavy ranch equipment such as lock-and-chain-secured generators. Rambunctious ATV enthusiasts leave deep tracks that quickly lead to serious erosion. Some of the four-wheelers zoom straight up hills and spin circles on very fragile land, causing damage that will take a hundred years or more to recover. It’s terrible that some people have no respect for the land, be it public or private.”
