The terrain at D:F Ranch is mid-elevation desert cactus shrubland. Hills and rocky outcrops stud the area, with flat to gently sloping terrain often abruptly transitioning to steep, bouldery hills. D:F Ranch offers a blend of these two types of topography, which is part of why it was selected. We are in the southwestern foothills of the Hualapai (pronounced wall-a-pie) Mountains, in an ecological transition zone between three major western United States biomes. The Mojave Desert lies to the north and west, while the Sonoran Desert lies to the south and southeast, and the Arizona Interior Chaparral/Great Basin zones blend in from the Hualapai Mountains to the east. The result is that plant and animal species from all three zones are found on the property and in the region, making for rather remarkable scenic diversity and biological interest. D:F Ranch is located at an elevation of 3000 feet, with the main ridges of the Hualapai Mountains rising to over 6000 feet on average, and up to 8400 feet.
