About Ross and Nancy Kirkham

I guess I've been in love with the West for as long as I can remember. I grew up with stories of my Father's childhood on ranches in the Roaring Fork Valley of Western Colorado, before tractors came to that country. My Mother's Father was a book and record collector and had a wonderful collection of Western History and Art Literature. In the last 36 years I've worked as a Ranch Hand, Range Rider, Horse Shoer, House Carpenter, Dude Wrangler, Hunting Guide and last but not least a Camp Cook. I've been doing pencil and pen drawings for most of that time. I've also, been playing guitar and writing songs for about 25 years now, which still surprises me? My wife, Nancy and I live on the ranch, we raise hay, Skipper W Quarter Horses and Hell once in a while! Come and see us! Ross

                                                          Beautiful 3 bedroom home. A wonderful place to unwind, relax and enjoy the view of the adobes. Wish we had time to explore more. Close enough to Delta to visit with family without much road time. Thanks for the wonderful hospitality. Enjoyed Russ’s art work.

                                                          This property is a great rental. It is very clean and comfortable. The rooms are very spacious. We were only here for one night, but wished we had time to stay longer. Nancy was a very gracious hostess.
