Wolfe Ranch

Electronic Photo Album

Wolfe Ranch is a part of Arches National Park, near Moab, Utah. It was started by my great-great-grandfather, John Wesley Wolfe, after the U.S. Civil War. He lived there until a few years before his death in 1913. Before he started the ranch, he lived in Etna, Ohio, (just east of Columbus), and he returned there after he sold the ranch. He is now buried in Etna. These pictures were taken for us by a friend of my sister in 1997, who was passing through the area on business. Since I've never been there myself, these pictures will have to mostly speak for themselves.

Well, that's the best of the batch. I really don't have much more information than what you see here. At the time I originally posted this page, there wasn't any other information available on the web about Wolfe Ranch, but that has since changed. I don't have any other Wolfe Ranch pages linked here, so you'll have to search for Wolfe Ranch in your favorite search engine to find them. Full disclosure: I did alter several of the pictures in an attempt to eliminate the tourists who got in them. Mostly, I just cropped the pictures, but I did actually air-brush one photo to get rid of somebody.
