If you visit the reserve today, you might think “I don’t see ten years of work here". When the work first started, I only had a vague idea that eventually turned into a vision. It is hard to describe the hard work it took to transform the place, as it was just pastureland with an old corral. Thankfully, with the help of dear friends, who donated their time and efforts, the place was gradually transformed. Carrying food on our backs and, at times, materials on horseback, was normal for each trip. The first attempts were disastrous, the original plan did not go quite as planned, so every time something went wrong, I had a chance to adapt my vision until the place became what it is today.
