Grand Mesa is the largest flat-topped mountain in the world! It is 40 miles across and most of that is above the altitude of 10,000 feet. Our dog Jasmine loves to visit during the winter. The bottomless powder puts her in snowmobile mode and I think this is what she dreams about when she yips […]
It’s a big snow year in the North Fork Valley! We usually measure the snow in inches down in the valley, but El Niño has made us get out the yard stick. I created a cross country ski loop in the yard which is 1,000 feet long and in the shape of a figure eight. There […]

Always good fishing at the small lakes and you might catch a glimpse of Rocky Mountain sheep, elk, goats or the occasional bear. The largest animal we saw – besides humans and […]
The heat is on in the valley so it’s time to escape to the cool air of the high country. Fern forests under a canopy of green aspens greet us with a welcome blast of humidity. Above 10,000 feet is the place to be on a hot summer day. Thank you!
