Welcome to Bonanza: Scenery of the Ponderosa!


The Cartwrights on horses
       Welcome to Bonanza: Scenery Of The Ponderosa!  Dedicated to the legendary and most-beloved TV Western series of all time.  Today, the series is seen in 30 countries, in 12 languages, and over 280 million viewers worldwide in reruns since 1973.  It was the first television series designated to be filmed and broadcast in color in the great outdoors and second longest-running next to Gunsmoke.
       This web site is a dedicated shrine and preservation of the series history, its stars, filming locales in three states and the 430 episodes broadcast from September 12, 1959 to January 16, 1973.  Many other outstanding features include the famous opening sequences, lyrics to the famous theme song, horse biographies, monthly calendar, many photos and screen captures, live Lake Tahoe sky cams, and a fine story that was never filmed, by Joan Markowitz, who was Fenton Coe's secretary and was a good friend of the cast.
       This labor of love is going on 20 years strong and will continue to prosper in memory of Michael Landon, Lorne Greene, Dan Blocker and the Cartwright Family.  America's most-beloved fictional-family of the great Ponderosa Ranch on the glistening crown of Lake Tahoe in the Sierra's.
