I imagine that anyone who lives in Tucson, Arizona has passed by the Rooster Cogburn Ostrich Ranch along I-10, at Picacho Peak many times. And I imagine that most Tucsonans have, as they passed by doing 85, thought to themselves that some day they would stop in and see what it’s all about.
On a perfect day in early April, we did just that. We weren’t expecting much. Just another American roadside attraction with a petting zoo and a couple of ostriches. I will admit in advance that we were WRONG. Rooster Cogburn is a HOOT AND A HALF!
It turns out that this family-owned and operated ranch is a great place for school-age kids; AND their parents and grandparents too. It’s one of Southern Arizona’s best attractions and we hardly know anyone who’s been there.
Here are some images we took of families enjoying themselves at one of Southern Arizona’s most unique and engaging attractions.
