Wildlife abounds in the area with a family of deer regularly passing through the yard and grazing right in front of the house, many varieties of birds, and if you’re lucky you may spot bald eagles flying over the creek and up into the mountains, wild turkeys are also frequent visitors along with a variety of other wildlife you might have the opportunity to spot.
This home is located about a block off a state Hwy. and the road from the Hwy. to our house is asphalt; so no gravel roads to travel. You can begin a hike from our house up the mountain to nearby forest service land, fish in our creek or walk to or begin a hike about a mile from our house that takes you to a “local” water hole. GeoFun Trek Tours, a guided tour company, is located a block away.
