Today's Features

  • Our dense, conifer-rich forest dodged a bullet over our fourth of July weekend. The rains came, but the always- threatening lightening did not. That translates into no fires here so far, thankfully.

    Obviously, there is a little kid still in all of us, and that was very evident, right down the road from this ranch on the 4th.

    Our Pendaries neighbors hosted a kite flying event, in the open space behind the new John Harrington Memorial Garden.
