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.

snake eating lizard

 We found this at the gate.  I decided to let the snake live but to move it farther away from the house.  While using a rake to shoo the snake away, I found out that snakes find it difficult to move with prey in their mouth.  After more encouragement from me to move, the snake regurgitated the lizard and quickly slithered off.  Meanwhile the lizard lay still and bloody on the driveway.  I went to scoop up the fellow to toss him away and suddenly he moved.  I helped him to the grass and he recovered enough to run away. 
Can you imagine being half dead in a snakes mouth then to be pulled out and survive?
