    Default An old ranch and owls

    It's getting a bit too hot here to do much exploration but we did manage to get out for a short trip yesterday morning. We've been passing an old ranch on our travels so we thought we'd take a closer look. The place looked to be fairly modern, we haven't found any history on it yet, we'll have to ask some locals to fill in the gaps.
    The best part of the trip was finding three owls asleep in one of the structures. Two flew away (sorry for disturbing your sleep guys) but one hung around to watch us and have his photo taken. I think they're either Whiskered Screech Owls or Flammulated Owls, not sure which but either way, they sure were cute.

    Here's where the owls lived

    Johnnie & Sheila, I don't think the place is for sale. There's another house on the property that looks to be in very good condition. Someone took the time to carefully board the windows and doors up and then caulk the boards in place. I'd guess it belongs to either the forest service or some rich folks who keep it around to used occasionally.
    By the way, those N.Y. hot dogs sure sound good! It's been ages since I've had one.
