Private property borders the ranch on all sides. The Rio Grande forms most of the northern border of the ranch. The topography is flat, with an elevation of approximately 7640 to 7650 feet above sea level. There only permanent residential improvement on the property is a seasonal fishing cabin in the central area, adjacent to a spring-fed pond that rises and falls with the river. The north area of the ranch consists of a riverbank, cottonwood forest (bosque) and wetlands. About 15 acres of the wetlands are permanent; the rest are dry between November and March.

There are minor agricultural improvements, such as corrals and irrigation ditches with gates. Approximately 120 acres of the property are irrigated, and there is natural subirrigation throughout from spring runoff. The property boundary is fenced except for the boundary line that is in the river. Fencing consists of traditional multiple strands of barbed wire, with reinforcements at property corners and gates. There are cross-fences and an old barbed-wire fence surrounding part of the seasonal cabin area.
