For some 80 years the ranch had been abandoned. There were ancient apple, cherry, walnut, and fig trees, each a giant mess of dead and overgrown branches. There was a small, trashed, cabin with no remaining doors or windows – a real fixer upper. Charred stone footings of the original pioneer family home were all that remained from its original owners. There were burn scared oak and fig trees showing where the original barn had stood, plus an assortment of ancient, abandoned farm equipment and assorted rusty junk.
