It may seem like every available square inch of America’s soil has been plowed, covered in cement, or turned into a shopping mall, but nothing could be further from the truth. There still are great pieces of land that have been protected for years by land owners who appreciate nature, wildlife and its effect on the human spirit. If you are ever blessed to be in position to purchase some of this land, do not hesitate. Jump at the opportunity. You will enjoy it for the rest of your years, and your family will cherish it for many years beyond that.
Colorado, the home of the Rocky Mountain Range, has many acres of majestic land for sale right now. Anyone looking for a way to recharge their batteries with a vacation home, or looking to really get away by making a permanent home in the wild country will not find a better location in America. You can get these properties with their own private reservoir and native wildlife adding beauty and character to the area. Mule deer and elk are common to Colorado’s unspoiled areas. Some land owners graze cattle on this spacious and green land.
The Versatility of Colorado Ranchland just Adds to the Value
Uses of Colorado ranchland vary considerably from owner to owner. For instance, in the Williams Fork Valley, there is a combination of private and public land with a great wildlife population that occupies both. Many are looking for solitude. The ability to get away from city lights and truly admire the stars and magical glow of the moonlight is certainly an attraction. Others want the unique thrill that only outdoor adventure sports can provide.
Off road vehicle riding, hunting, hiking, camping and fishing come to mind. I myself often enjoy four wheeling on a friend’s ranch in the area. Others choose to work their ranches. The raising of livestock is as personally rewarding as it is financially. Even with the modern conveniences of large scale commercial farming, many people prefer to live close to the land as they work it, even if not for a living but as a way of life. They do this because it connects them to the past; it connects them to the people that built this country and settled this land out west.
One very creative use of the land that I have seen is for Colorado ranch owners to open their property to hunters. Not only are you bringing a new stream of revenue, you have the satisfaction of knowing you helped someone else have the ultimate vacation experience, one that is becoming increasingly harder to have as time goes on. This source of revenue is just one of the many ways one can make owning such pristine land work for you.
The Natural Character of the Land
Much of the Colorado Mountain range is covered in grass and sagebrush. One truly awe inspiring tree, the Bristlecone Pine, can be found in the Williams Fork area. These ancient trees are the single longest lived organisms on the planet. They lend a timeless character to the backdrop of living on these Colorado ranches for sale. Another notable characteristic are the large heard of elk and deer roaming the lands. They care not about private or public land; they go where they please and everyone here loves it that way. If you choose to lay down some roots here, they may be the first ones to welcome you!
