South Pocket photos

RagnaRanch aka Frostpocket Redux aka South Pocket Ranch is closer to reality.

My extended family is buying several plots of land near Hamilton's Pool, twenty minutes west of Austin. 8 plots have already been taken, and my parents and myself to purchase another 4, if our offer is accepted. My aunt Honoria has a few details on her blog, and also here (and elsewhere at her page)

I'm guessing my share to be about 1.5 acres - planning to plop a yurt on the spot, and spark up the campfire. I do miss living near my family clan, owning a piece of property would certainly encourage visits, especially in fall and spring.

My dad took these photos of the 4 plots we are sharing.

copy of the plat with some features that we have located by walking over the ground with tape measures, etc. There is a large slab (32x85) on lot 28 which seems to have been intended for a hale-bale structure. It is level with the road at the narrow (garage?) end. On lot 29 is a slab 16x16 feet perched near the edge of the cliff/slope down to the valley. The dotted lines are the top and the bottom of the slope. Between lots 28 and 29 is a wash/gully/whatever that continues onto lots 27 and 26. On lot 30 is the well that is the scource of the hangup at the moment. The owner is “positive” that the well is on lot 29 and wants another $x for it. He will be here next weekend. After he settles the well location issue then we will renew negotiations.

southpocket 082 small slab
close up of the small slab. It is situated just a few feet from the edge of the cap rock and would have a nice view of the valley below and the hill across the creek if a few trees were removed.

On lot 26 in the valley is another large slab that we will have to decide how to deal with.
