Great Things To Come...
Just a trailhead scene, but indicative of all there is to come beyond the Sandstone Quarry Trailhead-- the red and yellow sandstone buttes of the Calico Hills and Turtlehead Peak lording over it all.

Thanks-- this was such a beautiful area. I liked it so much that I'm even half-considering looking at homes that are literally about a five-minute drive from Red Rocks. Even though they have smaller lots and are more expensive than the places we have been looking at, it might be worth it to back up to a conservation zone and look at Red Rocks from your windows every day, not to mention being close enough to ride a bike or even walk to get there.

Found some similar properties in and around the Sangre De Cristos that back up to USFS land and protected common grounds. It would be sweet if it works out! Would this be a second home?

No, only home. If we could afford two homes, we'd have one in the SW for the winter and another in Montana for the summer. I guess we could afford two small homes, but with the kids, we need more space, and space isn't cheap!

My wife & I had the opportunity to look over
the 'Blue Diamond' area. I was really
surprised of its proximity to Red Rocks, yet
it has ground cover and trees that give it a
"parkland like" feel.

Please check your PM, Bob.
