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.
