Lost Elk Ranch is a picturesque Colorado high country ranch nearly surrounded by national forest featuring excellent wildlife habitat, water resources and luxury improvements. The 1,378± acre J Bar Unit consists of 738± deeded acres plus adjacent 640± acres of state land controlled by the ranch. It is an exceptional wildlife property, featuring trophy-caliber elk, mule deer, black bear and an occasional moose. A diverse landscape of aspen groves, dark timber, mountain meadows, sagebrush and creeks flow over multiple drainages, providing excellent habitat and attracting game from surrounding public lands. The ranch has abundant water with three streams, stocked fishing ponds, historic water rights and irrigated meadows. The recently constructed 5,700± square foot home incorporates the finest materials and a well-designed floor plan for guests and entertaining. Located less than 30 miles south of Steamboat Springs in the secluded upper Morrison Creek valley, the ranch is bordered by over 5 miles of national forest with the Gore Range and Sarvice Creek Wilderness to the east and Green Ridge to the west. The J Bar Unit can be combined with the adjacent 4F Unit for additional improvements and acreage totaling over 2,000± acres.
It all started on the beautiful West Coast of California in the San Francisco Bay area. Colorado was always the home of my family, so - off with the sandals and on with the ski boots - the family arrived in Littleton, Colorado. In 1976, I attended CSU and then soon found myself wanting a career in the healthcare field.
After graduating from the Presbyterian Hospital School of Nursing and Radiologic Science, I was employed as manager of Boulder Memorial Hospital Trauma CT Unit.
