It's not near any town, and not even too close to any ranch buildings. The closest place a couple miles away is the old Ilo Belsky place, but no one has lived there since he died in 1986. Ilo was a soft spoken bachelor who lived an almost hermit-type existence. Most people in the area didn't even know him, because it was very seldom that he would even sneak in to Eli to stock up on a few groceries. He was mostly known for maintaining about 25-30 head of the old Spanish Barb mustang horses and about that many nice Angus cattle. He called his outfit the Phantom Valley Ranch.
