Location and Area

Mancos is poised at the base of Mesa Verde National Park, and as a small rural town, offers basic services to the surrounding community. The charming town of Durango is located 35 miles to the north, and has many big city conveniences, including a state-of-the-art new hospital, many fine restaurants, hotels, shopping, a four-year college, and many cultural activities. The four-corners area provides endless activities for the outdoor sports enthusiast. The ranch is at an elevation 7,000 ft. above sea level, surrounded by scenic mountain and valley views, and over 300 days of sunshine each year. Comfortable summer temperatures reach the upper 80s, while the autumn days are clear, cool and full of vibrant foliage colors. The crisp and sunny winter days often feature abundant, light powdery snow.

The Montezuma County area, which includes Mancos, Cortez and Dolores, has a population of approximately 30,000 and is the southwestern most of the 64 counties in the state of Colorado. Mesa Verde National Park, Canyon of the Ancients National Monument, Yucca House National Monument, and Hovenweep National Monument preserve hundreds of ancient Amer-Indian structures, including the famous cliff dwellings, found in the county. Roughly 1/3 of the county is tribal land, 1/3 is federal land (administered by the National Park Service, the United States Forest Service and the Bureau of Land Management), and 1/3 is private or state/county land. The La Plata County area, including Durango and Bayfield has a population of 45,000. La Plata County Airport runs daily commercial air service to Denver, Dallas, and Phoenix, and includes facilities for full service general aviation.
