The NeighborhoodOur neighborhood is mostly our property. If you choose to go for a walk, our extended neighbors are friendly and our area has many horse and cattle farms. You can get a close up view of these animals grazing on the rolling green fields. Its not uncommon to see deer, wild turkey and we've even seen a couple of black bear running in the distance. But, don't worry. They aren't interested in you! If spotted they are running away and we've never had any problems in 20 years here on the Ranch. It's just a pretty cool site!
