Go on vacation knowing your house, CRYSTAL--There' s more - a lot more- to Crystal, the tiny rural enclave near Ash Meadows, than meets the eye of the casual visitor. It was in this area between the Southern Nye County Communities of Pahrump and the Amargosa Valley that the lost Death Valley '49ers rested and watered their surviving stock after their sojourn through the deserts of Utah and Nevada. From there the determined band of pioneers crossed, the barrier range into the mountains of Death Valley, where there scouts were dispatched to find a way to the gold fields of California. And it is in this old West setting that an entrepreneurial businessman, Ron Matheny, has struck his claim as the proprietor of the Shortbranch Saloon, operator of the Pioneer Territory Wagon Tours and also a unique Western petting zoo on the property, among other busi- nesses in Pahrump Valley. That's where Sullivan, the llama is a star attraction, along with a friendly gray burro from Missouri with the appropriate name of "jack-A," a matched pair of Belgium horses "Bonnie and Clyde," a pot-bellied pig named Bill, among an as- sortment of other barnyard animals for the enjoyment and delight of urban young- sters in a setting reminis- cent of the Old West.

Eventually, they hope to offer their base camp to lo- cal Scout troops as a place to practice their outdoor skills in a true Western en- vironment. Ron Matheny, and his llama, Sullivan,joined with their Crystal neighbors in a recent bi-annual workday clean-up of their tiny Ash Meadows Community nestled between Pahrump and the Amargosa Valley.
