A comment from a recent visitor to Mescal:

“Our guide was absolutely wonderful. He knew so much about a wide range of very old, semi-old, and newer Westerns. We were so delighted – it is hard to find the words! We had a wonderful time. …  I hope you tell him how much we enjoyed the tour, every minute of it and hopefully we will get a chance to return.”
