Sierra Verde Ranch.
Spectacular, peaceful, the mild side of all four seasons. Pitch black nights
with billions of stars, and air you don't have to chew.
Major elk, mule deer, pronghorn antelope, javalina, wild mustangs and
burros. An occasional badger, bobcat and mountain lion. Three kinds of
eagles; American bald, Mexican black, and Golden eagles. Red tail hawks,
dove, quail, wild turkey & turkey buzzards abound. An awesome environment in
which to recharge your spirit. Most folks start with weekend get-a-ways, then

mix of grass and lightly scattered cedar & juniper trees (great horse

pine. From the Ranch you can see 5 mountain ranges from many places. The
Juniper, Mohon, Aquarius, Cottonwood, & Hualapai mountains. Views of the
often snow capped San Francisco Peaks can be seen from a hundred miles away.
Nestled in the Juniper Mountain Range, the Ranch enjoys mostly mile high
elevations from 5,000' to 6,400'.
