Lazy Three J Ranch: Ranching, bighorn habitat, and history are permanently conserved in the scenic Wildcat Hills

In 1887, John McNett crept up a slot canyon in the Wildcat Hills west of Chimney Rock. He had homesteaded the land and wanted to leave his mark by etching his name and year into the sandstone, in the upper reaches of what is now known as McNett Canyon. Over the years, many more names and dates would be added, creating a historic visitor registry carved in stone.
