Ranch Security – First Steps

by on Jun.30, 2004, under Security

When we were up for Memorial Day, 2004, we were getting A LOT of traffic using our private drive. Some was intentional, most was not. We hate to do it, but due to the erosion on our drive, we decided to place No Trespassing signs at the lower end. This won’t keep out those who don’t care, but will inform those that just don’t know this is private property.

June at the Ranch

June
Warm days & Cool Nights
June is a great month to visit the ranch. Trees and bushes now have leaves, the stickers have not yet returned to the meadow, and the temperatures are mild. Wear long sleeves and pants, though… The gnats will drive you crazy this month. They go away after a few weeks, thankfully…

Antelope
June 5th, 2004.
Afternoon.
We were driving around Sierra Verde Ranch, doing some exploring when we came across these antelope about a mile from our place. It was in the 900 parcel number range. Please excuse the pixelation, as I didn’t have quite enough optical zoom on the camera…

Getting the LittleHouse Permit – Con’t

by on Jun.07, 2004, under LittleHouse Permits

Page 3
Page 3 is a checklist for the plot plan on page 2. There are a few things not checked on the septic part, because the land use specialist at the county said we didn’t need them, since our septic is already approved.
