    The ranch is one of the largest in the Prince George area. Our total area of almost 2000 acres includes mostly rolling lands of pasture, hayfields, mature timber and thick forests. Countless foot and horse trails traverse the diverse landscape of our ranch and we can see the snow covered peaks of the Rocky Mountains from our highest point. Mike is also an avid amateur astronomer. We have a Celestron 11" EDGEHD scope on site and are less then 20 minutes from the 60cm telescope observatory of the Prince George Astronomical Society.
