I chose Tule Springs Ranch State Park for my shoot-out, mainly because of its history. In order for you to appreciate the photos I took, I need to give you a brief summary so bear with me for a moment.
In the 1920's and 30's Nevada relaxed it divorce laws, thus launching the "Divorce Industry" which included lawyers, judges and hotel owners. The most colorful aspect of this new industry was the "divorce ranch" where would-be divorcees (many of them wealthy eastern socialites) could live and entertain themselves while waiting to fulfill Nevada's six week residency requirement. Guests would spend their time swimming, horseback riding, picnicking, or even helping out with ranch chores. Tule Springs Park reserves one of the last remaining divorce ranches in the Las Vegas area.
