National Geographic : 1929 Nov
In winter . . . Summer rides herd on Arizona ranchos "I'11 show you how to put the Sunny June brand on old December." So writes Bill-and I believe he's plumb locoed. So crazy about his new Arizona ranch that he's after our whole crowd to come out. Says he's going to give them a taste of the real hard-riding, bronco-busting old West, like it or not. "Bunk with the regulars in a ranch house," he writes, "or loll de luxe in a mesa hotel." He has us all la- beled. "Jane and Bob couldn't live out of ring of a head waiter, so it's Phoenix for them. Ted and Marj enjoy their weakness and Old Mex ico is-just across the border from Nogales or Douglas. Lazy Mary wants just a winter tan. Big game hunting for. .. " You may not have the same tastes as Bill's friends. But you can, as thousands are doing each winter, take your Arizona as you like it. Straight and raw (yet in com fort) withreal cattle ranches, roundups, trails of Apache. Or with the soft luxury of the most modern hotels. Phoenix, Tucson, Doug las, Benson, Tombstone and Globe are centers of the guest ranch activity. At Chandler, Ariz., and at Palm Springs and Indio,ontheSouth ern California desert, are still other different winter resorts-comfort able inns of striking individuality. Southern Pacific's GOLDEN STATE ROUTE, Chicago or St. Louis to Los Angeles, San Diego and Santa Bar bara, or SUNSET ROUTE, New York and New Orleans to Los Angeles and San Francisco (both routes thru El Paso) directly and exclusively serve this spirited region. Choice of two other great Southern Pacific routes broadens the return journey. Only Southern Pacific offers choice of four great routes. Go one way, return another, and see the whole Pacific Coast. Rooms en suite . . . every refinement of travel comfort distinguishes these trams- "Golden State Limited," "Sunset Limited." Southern Pacific Four Great Routes S. .
