Grave of Johnny Ringo.

Grave of Johnny Ringo

Talk about off the beaten path. You drive several miles down a dirt road and stumble upon it (on your left) with a sign stating "RINGO's grave site." The weeds were tall as you walk through the gate and down to the site. It's on private property, so best to get there, snap a photo and get on your way. Hours: 8am-6pm
