Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: Born in NYC, I grew up in Cleveland and heard family stories about the West from childhood. Indian baskets and pots, photos, tall tales about Western adventures filled our house. When it came time for college, I chose Prescott College, a mile high in the Pinyon Juniper country of Western Arizona. The Four Corners got me in its grip, and never let me go.

Why the Owner Chose Cortez, CO, USA:
McElmo Canyon has been a special place since the days of Butch Cassidy's gang, who wintered in a local cave and rode up to Dolores for their favorite home cooking (Mrs. Hall's cafe). The canyon's micro-climate supports orchards, truck gardens and grapes, with intriguing side canyons, hoodoos, and monoliths like Battle Rock, dominant and majestic. To our back is Canyons of the Ancients National Monument, we look south at Sleeping Ute Mountain, Battle Rock, Sutcliffe Vineyards, Mesa Verde National Park to the east - and red rock and native Fremont cottonwoods everywhere.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
No need to get back in the car: hike, bike, ride your horse on sandstone trails throughout Canyons of the Ancients National Monument, out our back gate. A grand but intimate view - splendid, protected and private. Relax in the quiet sunny Bunker with flagstone patio, full amenities, a step away from an ancient and sacred place.
