We have lived and owned property in Colorado on and off since 1985 when we made our first family ski vacation. When we retired from our business, we knew we wanted to spend more time in the high country. The property in South Park is a perfect place for us. Here we live in quiet comfort and enjoy the magnificent vistas and pure clean air at 10,385 ft. Our place is close to civilization and conveniences and yet also close to remote areas that rival any place for sheer beauty and enjoying nature.
Our house and rental apartment is on a wooded 1-acre plot with aspens and evergreens. There are hiking trails that begin literally from our back door! The views to the west are constantly changing and never cease to amaze us. Spectacular sunsets frequently burst across the sky. We love the area of South Park so much that we wrote a book about it! It's called Colorado's South Park, High Country Paradise (Available through Amazon or Paypal).
