Well, about twelve years ago the ranch was sold to a guy in California. He very quickly figured out that this place is not easy to get to....and the ranch just sat there for years, empty. No people and no horses. It finally sold last year, and I have yet to see anyone there. So sad...
Those that know me, know that I probably know the history of this land. There was another large house here in the late 1800's and the family was friendly with the Ute Indians. Some men from town came out once and said that the Ute Indians were on a raid, and coming their way and the family should hide. The husband was not there, and the wife said" Chief Ouray will not lay a finger on my family". ....and guess what?.... he didn't. The family only had one child, a son...and he in later life wrote children's books about cowboys and Indians. I own two.
a closer look at the house.
