Spirit Mountain Ranch
At an elevation of 7,000-7,550 feet this is one of the premier mountain ranch subdivisions in the Apisipha River Valley, and you are only some 15-20 minutes from the San Isabel National forest via Cordova Pass Road. This ranch has one of the strongest spiritual connections with the Wah-ha-toyas we've ever felt. We think that this spiritual connection is really why this ranch is called "Spirit" Mountain. There is a peace and tranquility here that transcends your worldly cares the moment you drive through the gate. This is one of our favorite mountain ranch subdivisions. It is popular with buyers because of the gentle mountain terrain that includes those mountain ridge-tops, meadows, canyons with seasonal creeks, and views of the Spanish Peaks. This is a virtual haven for local deer, elk, bear, and other wildlife too. Some of the parcels are just perfect for horses while others offer perfect mountain retreat land with those 'in your face' views of the Peaks. The snow on the Peaks during the winter season adds to the tranquility and closeness of the Wah-ha-toyas, and in the springtime the open rolling meadows are highlighted by an incredible array of wildflowers. If you want beauty, peace, and a sense of spiritual connection with the surrounding mountain peaks then this is the ranch you need to see.
