The closest stop sign is over a mile away and the first traffic light is 5+ miles down the road. A visit to the grocery store is almost 30 miles round trip. It's quiet here; just the sound of toads and coyotes at night. It seems very still, but when you look close there's always something happening. Read on about a few things we've noticed over the past few years.

This just in...

This afternoon I looked overhead and spotted one of my red tail hawks circling above.  Legs were extended out and both claws were clutching a GIANT snake.  The hawk was quite high and the snake looked HUGE.  Thick and long (that's what she said) !!   I am so glad the hawk caught the snake because if I crossed it's path I would have gone into serious freak-out mode.  Unfortunately I didn't have my camera on me and the hawk quickly glided over to the other side of the hill behind us.  I can't emphasize the SIZE enough.  Anywho, this is my first post without pictures but my excitement needed to be recorded immediately.   Ciao.

  1. Lot of wildlife out there. You can't always have a camera on the ready. Nice shots though. Keep em coming. Thanks.
