The Lazy RR Ranch at Patagonia was featured in twelve's "Top Hand" in filmed cuts
of the Cartwrights, trail hands and wild horses, in the rolling hills,
with oak, willow, cottonwood and Arizona nut trees. The lake scenes were also filmed in the same region. The grand
vistas and rolling hills of grasslands stretch for miles, and nearby is
breathtaking San Rafael Valley.
The other region where shots were filmed at, was a ranch outside town,
over by the Sharp Ranch, seen in "Top Hand" with the ranch house, barn,
and corral. It was also used in thirteen's "The Grand Swing" and "Bushwhacked!".
