A Bit of Snow, Holiday Cheer, and Looking Forward

This was the scene here at Paca Pride Guest Ranch  during the last week of the year. We haven’t seen any snow through most of December, only Thanksgiving weekend had the impressive six inches,  so it’s nice to see it back just in time to celebrate the New Year.  The weather is cooperating by giving us some cool and clear nights, assuring the snow will last until New Year’s Day. That makes fun in the snow possible for toboggans. Our road down to the lower pasture becomes the attraction as you can see <here>.

Of course, Maximo and Shadow, the ranch greeters, are always on hand to say hello to everyone and officially welcome you to the ranch.

Not only do we look forward to replenishing our alpaca socks, we also look forward to how this space will change over this coming year. In the window will be some more garden fresh Future Mountain Loop Tourism Bureau locationindoor grows including basil and lettuce. Currently, our fresh Malabar spinach vines out and grows its berries there.  The entire back section of the store is set to feature the tourism efforts of tTourism Brochureshe Mountain Loop Tourism Bureau.  Paca Pride is fortunate to be one of the very first stops that visitors see when they leave the town of Granite Falls behind and climb Sand Hill towards Robe Valley. At the mouth of the valley and sitting on the edge of the Green Mountain plateau, we are the stop along the Mountain Loop for a spectacular view of Mt. Pilchuck.
