is located just outside of Elizabeth, Colorado at the transition from
the high plains prairie to the foothills of the Colorado Rockies. We

goldfinches, nattering blue jays, magpies, crows and even a pair of
nesting golden eagles. Our pastures are shared by deer, pronghorn,
skunks, weasels, rabbits, foxes, porcupines, turkeys and the old
trickster himself...the coyote.
We were thoroughly city people who followed our hearts rather than our
heads and ended up here, at the

recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity:
but dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their
dreams with open eyes, to make it possible. This I did."
