This is prime ranchland set amid towering rock mesas, evergreen woodlands and grassy meadows. The land is situated at a cool and clear 6,200 foot elevation where the comfortable temperatures allow ranch owners to enjoy their land year-round. The days here are sunny, the nighttime sky clear and the mountain air clean and refreshing. Occasional winter snowfalls are light, rarely exceeding more than two to three inches. Summer days are warm and sunny, but never hot. Average daytime summer highs are in the mid to upper 80s. The seasonal July/August monsoon rains bring additional cooling and turn the native grasses lush green. Throughout the summer, colorful mountain wildflowers spread across the land’s meadows.
