First Monsoon Storm 2015

by on Jul.10, 2015, under Seasons

We made it up to the Ranch in May to get the Littlehouse ready for summer.  Forgot to take any pictures for that trip.

Later, I went up to the Ranch for the weekend of June 27th for our annual Ham radio Field Day event.  Radio conditions were only fair this year, but we did get a really good thunderstorm on Saturday afternoon.

Labor Day 2014 at the Ranch

by on Sep.24, 2014, under Seasons

Our trip up for Labor Day this year was mostly to do some more cleanup behind the LittleHouse.

We ran into a few critters under the debris.  One of them was a nice taurantula. He was friendly, and posed no harm.

August 2014 at the Ranch

With the Monsoons in full swing, I decided to head up to the Ranch to get a break from the heat.  I came up alone, for just the weekend.

I did a little cleanup work and battery work, but mostly I sat outside and played with my new iPad while waiting to throw another piece of wood on the burn pile.

Here are some pictures of the scenery, nice and green…

Rain, Finally!

by on Sep.16, 2013, under Seasons

It has been raining for about the last month nearly every day at the Ranch.  Two of our neighbors up there said they recorded more than 10 inches of rain this summer.  That’s more than we’ve seen for a very long time.

Here are some pictures of a little greener ranch…
