John and Kerry Hart farm, Hwy 520 and Range Road 283,
15.5 km west of Claresholm. From Claresholm, follow 43rd
Avenue (also known as Hwy 520) west 15.5 km. (Beware:
This road takes an abrupt and poorly marked curve at 7.2
km. Don’t make the same mistake Ennis’s parents
did!) Turn left at Range Road 283 and go south 1.3 km.
Turn left again and follow the driveway 0.6 km.
The Lonesome Ranch has the characteristic grittiness of Brokeback’s
many flatland settings. Wallpaper and paint are peeling,
furnishings are shabby, children cry, work is hard; in
short, this place is about as experientially distant from
Campsite #2 as one could possibly imagine.
Always obtain appropriate permission before entering
private property. Driveway may require four wheel drive /
high-profile vehicle. Use caution.
“I’m tired of these lonesome old ranches.”
