Rock Creek Ranch embraces 10,400 acres of land in a series of succulent meadows surrounded by miles upon miles of good-quality rangeland below the shadow of the Smoky Mountains in Blaine County.
The ranch is home to sage grouse, a species of concern, as well as moose, elk, deer, antelope and other critters.

The deal was brokered by Trent Jones of Hall and Hall. Read the full story here.
