The topography of this ranch is relatively flat ranging from 2,660 to 2,745; however, there are some distant views from several spots on the ranch mostly from the crown of the sand hills.

These soils have light brown, non-calcareous, fine sand surface layer about 12" thick. The underlying layer is reddish-yellow, non-calcareous, fine sand about 68" thick. The Dune Lane consists of mostly barren, active sand dunes of light colored, eolian sands that show little evidence of soil development. The ranch consists totally of native pastureland and is currently leased for both grazing and hunting, the rancher operating the ranch for the last several years reports that cattle stocking rates depend primarily on rainfall. At this time the area has received above average rainfall year to date, so the native grasses and cover are in excellent condition. Shinnery Oak is prevalent over the entire ranch which provides excellent browse for the deer. Other vegetation consists of mesquite, cat claw, windmill grass, black grama grass, sand bluestem, and filaree. WILDLIFE The ranch has an array of wildlife which includes predominantly mule deer with some scattered whitetail. Historically, there has been an abundance of mourning doves. The ranch is well-known for hunts around the various water holes. Other wildlife includes blue quail, javelina, wild hogs, coyotes, and other varmints indigenous to the area.

WATER The ranch is adequately watered by virtue of a water line owned and operated by Conoco Phillips, originating from wells on the adjoining ranch. There are 4 submersible wells also that supply troughs in various spots on the ranch.
