What an odd inquiry. Creepy kinda. Not in a child molester way, but in a serial killer way. Or maybe it's just me getting that feeling.

The ridge on top of the hill behind the house is a great peeping perch.

I agree. He has stated that he has some serious medical conditions and that marijuana has help him tremendously in the past.

Just moved from that general area in May... What would you like to know?

Wolf Creek ski area is decent, lots of good hunting around there, lots of snow, cold... good fishing in the rivers....take up fly fishing for that area.
People can be stand-offish at first... you are an unknown in a small town. They will warm up....but you will always be the new guy.
Not a lot of amenities without some driving...

I have been there several times to ski Wolf Creek - great powder mountain btw .....

I personally like the other side of the pass better closer to Pagosa Spings ...

Ever think about Durango area ?

Durango is pricey and the area has gone downhill IMO... it's where I moved from recently.
Pagosa is OK...

Depending on what he is looking for... there are a lot of great areas.

I lived a few miles away for 17 years and know that area very well

PM
email

or ask on here

have not been there since 2003


during the late 80's and 90's there was a ton of property given up on taxes in that development

elevation is about 8500 ft
foothills, with sage grass and pinion trees
annual precipitation less than 10"
average humidity less than 10 percent
around 290 days per year of bright sunshine

lot sizes are very small considering the area and probably the least desirable


quite a few odd ball structures or old mobile homes .....

mostly undeveloped

what was developed was summer camp places, that were empty during the winter

the mountain above is Agua Ramon Mountain
pretty good elk hunting and mule deer

2005 to 2014 in Durango area, but hunted that area a lot from 90 or so...

where are you now ?

OB ?
Ono?
Bear Point ?
Soldiers creek ?

?


that's not a bad area to spend the summers

but long miserable winters IMO

winter starts on Sept 1st
there is no spring until June 15th
summers is one weekend on the 4th of July

I remember one morning the thermometer on my front porch was on minus 39 degrees
I got in my Ford F-100, the seat was hard as concrete
pushed in the clutch and the clutch pedal shaft broke off and the pedal and half the shaft were laying on the floorboard

that was 1987 I think

it's a good spot to own a snow machine, a jeep, and ATV, a pack tent with a wood stove

the plus is there are about 5-6 million acres of national forest at your fingertips
you can go somewhere different in the mountains every weekend for your entire life
and still not see half of it

you can live your life in 4WD low range
