Experience the Harvest Moon at the five acre Glow held each year Triangle L Ranch located in Oracle, AZ. You can catch this event for the next two Saturdays!
Thousands of lights, illuminated sculpture, multi-media displays, theatrical performances, and an evening of music give a chance to dress up in glow fashions and be enchanted.
Parking is free and easy. Start at the corral, check-in and have fun.  For more info. The ranch phone number is 520-623-6732. The address is 2805 N Triangle L Ranch Road.
The Triangle L Guest Ranch has been around which the 1880s and covers 50 secluded acres. Even “Buffalo Bill” Cody was able to find this ranch! Just head north on Oracle Rd. which turns into Highway 77. Approximately 4 miles past the Biosphere you see the turnoff for the town of Oracle. Instead of turning, pass the sign and take your next left onto Rockcliff Blvd. (between mile markers 100 and 101). Take your first right onto Oracle Ranch Road. Continue down about 1/4 mile and make a left on Triangle L Ranch Road (there is a street sign) follow to end and main house is on the left.
