Sunset at the Lazy Oak Ranch

See pictures of the sunset from The Lazy Oak Ranch.

See pictures of the sunset from The Lazy Oak Ranch. No two pictures were taken on the same day. The pictures were taken starting in 2006 when we first move to the ranch. There are many other sunsets that we have not taken pictures of. This is one of the reason we choose to live in the country. The sunset is not as beautiful when viewed in the city. You can also view another slide show of The Lazy Oak Ranch here.

Night Visitor

When Scott got home from youth vespers tonight, Bosco was barking at something on the ground. We went out and looked to see what it was. And low-and-behold, it was a bull frog!

He looked to be about 12 inches long from nose to toes. He was over 420 feet from the pond. He must have had quite a trip. We took him back to the pond, after taking some pictures, and let him run … hop … free!

On some nights, we can hear the frogs croaking away. We hear several large bull frogs sometimes. It is music to our ears! Some people may say that it is too quiet in the country, but that is the best way to live. We hear the barn owls and the coyotes sometimes also. It is melodious!

Welcome to the Lazy Oak Ranch

Welcome to the Lazy Oak Ranch, Our Little Slice of Heaven.  We are located in Placer County north of Lincoln California at the very edge of the foothills northeast of Sacramento. We are on 5 acres surrounded by beautiful horse country. Camp Far West lake, with year-round water recreation and miles of horse trails, is only 15 miles away.  We have horses, goats, dogs and cat.  Quite the menagerie.  Here is  a slideshow from the ranch.
