The country works like an inverted mountain. Grassland mesas give way to ponderosa pine-dotted ridgelines and huge, amazing views. Then there is transition from scrub-oak, pinon/juniper down 600 feet into bottom lands with riparian habitat where cottonwoods and willows grow. ABUNDANT Wildlife including elk, mule deer, turkey, bear, mountain lion, and bobcat. UNLIMITED Land Owner NO DRAW ELK PERMITS in a hunting unit with no public elk hunting!
Broken out of the 14,000 acre Maddox Ranch in 2007, this ranch is currently being improved with new fences and grazing leases have been signed. Investment in the test well located in the center of this property is probably the next good idea. Currently livestock is watered from multiple stock ponds and the river.
A paradise for the explorer, there are numerous stacked stone ruins and long abandoned homesteads. Old cemeteries are scattered in the area, and the southern ranch is near the historic village of Armenta Plaza. State land parcels also adjoin, as well as some BLM.
There are many choice building sites, and electricity comes off the rim down to a cul-de-sac in the center of the property.
