Lazy Evaluation Ranch

It's a pun, of course. All those instances lazy x ranch, and none of them reference Lazy Evaluation. We're just the ones to change all that!

Where we are

We are located on the traditional lands of the Lushootseed-speaking Noo-Seh-Chatl clan, who are now dispersed among the Squaxin and Nisqually people.

We are located on the unincorporated outskirts of Olympia in Cascadia.

We are are directly west of the Su'pEks promontory, near the historical trade centre and winter home of the Noo-Seh-Chatl people, Tuts'e'tcaxt.

We are bounded on the north by Chapman Creek1 which flows into Chapman Bay, which is adjacent to Woodard Bay. Both bays are on Henderson Inlet, a traditional watershed of the Noo-Seh-Chatl. Through that watershed, we are connected to the Salish Sea through Puget Sound.

Water says as much about where and who we are as land. From our little creek, we are linked to the whole of the Pacific and all the waters of this Earth. Of course, like so much land on the Pacific Rim, on clear days we can we can glimpse a great volcano just barely through the treetops.

Who we are

We are Corvi Zeman and Juli Mallett and a wonderful host of ungulates, birds, bees, slugs, lizards and snakes.

1: There is some disagreement about the name, but this is how it's marked on some local surveys. It is sometimes referred to as Sleepy Creek, which may also be a creek which runs further north, until the two merge in Chapman Bay.
