4.6 acres of rural off rid land for sale in St. John, Arizona about 22 miles S of Interstate 40 and Sanders. Its a very rural area off the beaten path in northeast AZ by Show Low, Holbrook, Gallup, and the Zuni Pueblo in New Mexico. Its a sunny spot for a get away close to the White Mountains zoned for a home, manufactured home or RV use. I spend quite a bit of time exploring and hanging out in this part of Arizona myself and is a great jumping off spot to the White Mountains to the South and Indian Country to the North!

All of the photos were taken of the property in February 2018. I sure had a difficult time finding this property and it took me two attempts to find it! The easiest way I found to the property is to take County Road 7230 west off Highway 191 for about 9.3 miles. Head north thru the gate and there is a sign that says entering Horizon Ranch as seen in images 45-47. The image numbers are at the top of the photos. This road was called Bar Nothing Ranch Road on my truck GPS as seen in image #42. See the note below about this road.

Follow that road about 2 miles north to a bladed dirt road. Head east on that bladed dirt road for about 2.25 miles. You will cross thru a break in a fence line. From that point the property is about 1/2 mile north and 0.15 miles east. The roads are overgrown from lack of use but a doable drive in my truck because the vegetation was pretty low. I suggest you use a truck to reach the property and if you have a 4wd all the better although I did not need it.

A note about the road: I had tried to find Bar Nothing Ranch Road previously but some of the maps incorrectly marks this as a road that sits 3.75 miles to the east which is a gated road you can not get thru. Image #43 is my hand held gps which shows that Bar Nothing Ranch Road running to the east.

This lot is a great choice if you're looking for some rural privacy and adventure. I noticed two other structures in the far distance hidden in the trees but no one in the immediate area so plenty of privacy. I imagine it's been quite some time since anyone stepped foot in this area and I did not see any tire marks! Heck it took me two days to figure out how to find my way in here myself and I do this for a living! I really studied Google Earth before heading out here a second time and suggest you study the maps to help piece together how to access this area.

The area is mostly flat with gentle rolling hills covered in juniper trees although people in this area also refer to these as cedars. The trees surround the rolling hills making for a lot of privacy. While it's remote and hard to find, it made all the wildlife in the area stand out even more. On my hunt for this property, I saw a beautiful red tailed hawk as well as a small herd of antelope!

The antelope I spotted in the area! I don't see those around this area often.

The White Mountains are considered the playground for people in the Phoenix and Tucson areas who wish to escape to the cooler temperatures of the higher altitude. The Apache/Sitgreaves National Forests, often called the White Mountains, and White Mountain Apache Reservation sit just to the south. It is the second highest mountain range in Arizona. It is home to more than 400 species of animals including antelope, elk, deer, fish, big horn sheep, mountain lions, black bears and gray wolves.

With over 450 miles of streams and 2000 surface acres of cold water lakes, many fisherman, bird watchers and hunters are drawn to the area. It also offers winter time recreational fun like skiing and snowmobiling. I fell in love with Big Lake last fall and plan on taking my new fishing pole I got for Christmas there. I included some of the photos and links to the hot fishing spots in the additional area photos below.

Within two or three hours are some of the most interesting Indian ruins and parks to explore including the Petrified Forest National Park, the Painted Desert, Canyon de Chelly, Window Rock, Monument Valley, Walnut Canyon and Wuptaki National Monument. My favorite spot to take visitors is to the Wukoki ruin which is part of the Wuptaki National Monument. It resembles an old castle and is enormous and makes me marvel at how they made it by hand!

The White Mountains is home of Smile4u and myself as well and I love spending time exploring during all four seasons! What snow we get doesn't stay around very long and there's always plenty of sunshine! I think it would be a great little spot for someone looking for a place to get away with no one around to enjoy the sunny desert! Enjoy! Char the Explorer : )

Apache and Navajo County Area Information

Apache County has a population of about 69,423 and encompasses 11,216 square miles. The Apache and Navajo Indian Reservations cover more than 65.4% of the county and more land is designated Indian Reservation than any other county in the USA. Approximately 21 percent is public land and 13.2 is privately owned so majority of the land is not for sale. Its also home of the Petrified Forest National Park and Canyon de Chelly National Monument.

Adjoining to the west is Navajo County with a population of about 107,500, encompasses 9,960 square miles. Many people think that Arizona is a vast, open desert without vegetation but Navajo County offers Monument Valley, Keams Canyon, part of the Petrified Forest National Park, and the largest stand of Ponderosa Pines in North America.

The counties offers extreme diverse regions with the forested White Mountains and green pastures in the south and high, dry, colorful plateau regions to the north. The Petrified Forest National Park and Painted Desert that we learn about in our elementary school geography books, offer visitors a spectacular journey into prehistoric times.

The dinosaurs originally came to the banks of the Little Colorado River and then the Indians. Pioneer families arrived from the east in the early 1880's. Scattered over the greater portion of the county and especially along the Colorado Chiquita River are many ruins of a prehistoric people. There is plenty of pure spring water in every town and village in the county, constantly fed by the rains and melting snow in the mountains.

The area is gorgeous and not what you would typically think of when you think of the desert. With elevation ranging from 4,000 to 10,000 feet, plush green pastures with animals grazing in the plateau region to the north and the snowcapped ski slopes in the White Mountains to the south offer a picturesque setting.

The area has four seasons with warm summer months and a few snow days in the wintertime. The snow usually melts in the lower altitudes in a day or two but the White Mountains become a wintertime playground.

Excellent fishing, hunting and skiing make the White Mountains a year-round recreation area for many living in the hot Phoenix sun. It is home of the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forests with 8 notable cold water lakes and numerous lakes and reservoirs: Aker Lake, Big Lake, Woods Canyon Lake, Willow Springs Lake,Black Canyon Lake, Chevelon Canyon Lake, Luna Lake, Bear Canyon Lake, Crescent Lake, and Blue River. There are over 680 miles of rivers and streams and the headwaters for the Black, Little Colorado and San Francisco rivers are in the White Mountains.
