Ridgway is one of the most beautiful areas in Colorado.  A photographer's, painter's and outdoorsman's
dream!  Summer and winter days are sunny and warm. You hardly ever have to worry about the rain spoiling
your plans. The nights are cool enough to induce a good night's sleep. The wildlife and remote quiet areas
are abundant and, yet, we are only a half hour from an airport, shopping and general services. Then, to top it
all off, the people are physically and mentally active, health conscious, friendly and courteous.
