The Big Hill

An open space in the forest with a view of a narrow creek going into the mountains

Many people wonder why Jeff spends so much time at meetings in town. Stewardship meetings, landowner meetings, oil and gas meetings you name it. Jeff would rather stay home on the ranch that has been in his family for four generations now. Jeff tells the story of his relationship with the big hill where his great grandfather built a sheep shed once where he now takes his family to see the springs and wildflowers. There is a reason why Jeff goes to so many meetings.
