Big Horn Canyon Ranch - Roosevelt, Washington
Big Horn Canyon Ranch is located about five miles north of the Columbia River near Roosevelt, Washington. The terrain ranges from extremely steep rugged canyon walls to leveled plateaued farm ground, with a unique aesthetic basin and several geologic variations in between. Dozens of windmills ring the property on three sides. Once inside the ring of towers the property takes on a power of its own blocking out much of the awareness of the surrounding area. There are utility easements (power & gas) through the property but no right of ingress or egress to the public.
