Built in early 1980 the Cabin housed staff and backpackers who would trek in the San Juan Mountains. At 8733' elevation, the mining area "Mayday" sits at the base of the historic and majestic La Plata Mountains beside the La Plata River running its course south to New Mexico.
Whether motorcycling, traveling by car or riding your road bike, you will agree few places in the southwest possess such breath-taking scenery! For mountain biking or running enthusiasts whose goal is to summit Kennebec Pass, just 1/4 mile outside your door the pavement turns to gravel for the next challenging 11 miles. The La Plata River is stocked with trout each year, so just take a nearby trail and toss in your line. Glorious fall colors grace our hillsides September/October when aspen, sumac, and oak forecast a change is coming.
World reknown Mesa Verde National Park is just 35 miles from our Cabin. Another must-see-and-do: the Durango Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad daily chugs 50 miles to Silverton along the Animas River with spell-binding views.
Southwest Colorado is outdoor heaven with a plethora of activities and things to do. Our beautiful scenery and environment can sooth the most stressed souls.
Year Purchased: 1979
About the owner: With a background in outdoor education, Ruthe and Jim have called "Mayday" their home for nearly 40 years. Raising two children here, they now are blessed with four grandkids who live just down the road.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:

X-C skiing is just outside your door and Hesperus Ski Area is the perfect slope to either learn technique or hone your telemark skills offering night skiing.
