Trent Nelson | The Salt Lake Tribune These aerial views of the YFZ (Yearning for Zion) Ranch outside of Eldorado, Texas, were taken on Tuesday, April 8, 2008, just days after law enforcement officers raided the FLDS compound. A handful of residents remained on the property, along with a large number of officers who were still conducting operations.

With Texas taking possession of the YFZ Ranch, we decided it was time to look back.

Photographer Trent Nelson collected photos of the ranch that stood for “Yearning for Zion.” The property was suppose to be a sanctuary. Now it’s just a memory for the FLDS.
