Harrison: "It has a conservation easement on a good portion of it. I wanted to be steward of a piece of undisturbed land. It's my ambition to leave that behind ... There's a walk to the Snake River that branches off through the cottonwood forest. It crosses a couple of streams. I can make that walk in my mind with spectacular detail. [The property] is teeming with wildlife."
