Travelling interstate 8, midway between Gila Bend and Casa Grande, the highway gently rolls through valleys and sloping rises. Cresting such a rise, approaching Exit 144 "Vekol Road", the wide Vekol Valley spreads out before you. Centered in this valley is the Vekol Road interchange, and the gateway to this pristine 528 acres of privately owned land.
Bordered on three sides by the new Sonoran Desert National Monument, and situated over two inter-connected aquifers estimated to hold 7 million acre-feet of water, this untamed land causes one to wonder, "What could it become?" A haven for explorers at the gateway to a new national monument? A peaceful destination for nomadic visitors in search of the famous warm and dry desert southwest? An exclusive residential resort destination? Or an elite Spa and Retreat complete with a championship golf course?

In 2001, President William "Bill" Clinton proclaimed the Sonoran Desert National Monument, "...a magnificent example of untrammeled Sonoran desert landscape…", and "The most biologically diverse of the North American deserts…". After extolling it's virtues, he set apart nearly 500,000 acres of pristine Sonoran Desert as the "Sonoran Desert National Monument".
Encompassed within this reserve are natural monuments rarely seen by human eyes, ruins and artifacts left behind by prior civilizations, and diverse flora and wildlife within vibrant ecosystems.
Nestled near the very heart of this wonderful National Monument lies 528 acres of privately held, virgin land available for purchase (see image at right).
