Fencing and driveway access will be very easy due to its level nature. At an elevation of 6,300', the land enjoys a comfortable year-round climate. Outdoor work is rarely curtailed due to the weather.

Summer temperatures are mild with daytime highs averaging in the upper 80's. The summer lows average in the 70's.

The residential, recreational and agricultural zoning allows livestock, camping and RV use at the owner's discretion. The land surface is blanketed with a fine tillable sandy loam soil, ideal for the raising of vegetables and fruit trees. Apples, cherries, plumbs, pears and a host of garden vegetables thrive in this soil. Area gardeners produce abundant yields of corn, tomatoes, carrots, beans, peppers, squash, and lettuce throughout the area's warm spring and summer growing seasons.
