We have had quite the first summer and want to thank all of our guests. It has been a busy time with many week-ends finding our cabins full.
This year the flowers were very beautiful and we have had good moisture for the first time in several years. Drifters Pond filled up and the browns and rainbow trout that were stocked in June have grown to good size. A lot of 1-2 pound trout have hook marks in their mouths!
Moose have been frequent visitors this year. We have two cows that visit frequently with the calves. A young bull is also seen often – he is growing his first rack now.
The Aspen and willow leaves are just beginning to show signs of turning. A lot of the ground foliage is showing their bright yellow and orange colors. The weeks after Sept 9 should begin to really have the best color. Our area has quite a mix of trees so we have the crisp yellow and reds of the aspen against the green of our pines and firs. The willows along our streams and rivers provide a mix of orange and red. Jackson County is a great place to spend a few days in the fall as our roads are not as crowded as other parts of Colorado. Plus we have great hiking trails in Colorado State Forest State Park and Routt National Forest. For those you like to ride, our area is just about the best in the state for accessible trails for ATV’s and trail bikes.
