Ranch house-front. Ranch: We live on a 41 acre ranch on Highway 3 in Hayfork, CA. It has 2 year-round creeks, 3 wells, a remodeled 1890's era ranch cabin, a dirt floor garage, 2 barns, and a pump house. We have named our ranch Dancing Goat Ranch, in honor of the antics of our first goat, Banjo.

Yurt: We have a 30 foot yurt, which we use as a guest house, as well as to play acoustic music, do art, and to meditate.

Banjo, our Pygmy Goat Pets: We have 2 "traditional" pets: 2 cats - a house cat and a barn cat. 
Farm animals
We have 5 farm animal pets: 3 Nigerian Dwarf Goats, 2 mixed breed sheep (look like Katahdins), and 1 llama. We lost our first llama to a dog attack and our current llama is his son. In 2012, we lost a sheep and our favorite goat, Banjo (that is him on the photo) to a pitbull dog attack. New baby goats to arrive soon.
Wildlife: On this page are photos of wildlife we have seen in the area, from deer to frogs. Actually we have seen a lot more, but we don't usually have a camera handy when that bear is racing across the highway!

Frog or toad

Praying Mantis Insects: So many interesting bugs, we had to give them their own page! If you like seeing the individual hairs on a spider's legs, check out this page!
Winter: Our winters are generally mild, a cold snap is 20 degrees. We usually have at least one intense snowstorm (and multiple power outages) that yield beautiful photos. Winter
