                  About the owner: We have enjoyed the natural beauty of Hastings Mesa for over 20 years. We also appreciate the convenience of all weather highways nearby to get us to Telluride, Ouray and Ridgway very quickly. We can watch an Elk herd in the morning and have lunch in Telluride, kayak on the reservoir in Ridgway or enjoy the hot pools in Ouray - all easily accessible on the State Highways.
