Our Ranch in the West of Canada
– in the Middle of Cattle Country
A little history about the ranch respectively about the old original homestead can be found in our
Browsers’ Corner in Katie Boyd’s childhood memories (as to FreePress 1993).
Green Lake`s area is fairly abundant with moose and deer, and black bear, coyote, squirrels and marmots are also present. The west end of the lake attracts waterfowl to the nesting and migratory resting area. Owls and golden eagles can also be seen.
Green Lake is one of the larger bodies of water in the southern portion of the Cariboo. The lake is about 9 miles (14 km) long, averaging 1.5 km in width, with an irregular shoreline of approximately 36 miles (57 km).
The lake is excellent for both summer and winter recreation. Swimming, boating, fishing, waterskiing, paddling, and horseback riding are all popular, and sandy beaches dot the irregular shoreline at five spots. The lake itself is quite shallow allowing for the waters to remain quite warm, even into the fall months. The undulating plateau and highlands around the lake have become a cross-country skier’s paradise
