Living in around Rye is like living in a resort. There are many second homes and it is very scenic. Also, the altitude makes it slightly drier and sunnier...very much what Colorado is all about.

The downside? CO City/Rye gets LOTS of snow! It is probably the snowiest place iin the state east of the Continental Divide. That makes it a tough commute, and that's why more people live there as retirees or have second homes. The interstate between there & Pueblo is fast, but the hills can be killer when icy.

I understand that Co.City got 14 inches of snow the other day. Rye got 11, did not hear about Beulah but I am sure they got their share. We in Canon City got a couple maybe three but it melted so fast hard to tell. Real wet good stuff.

Rye and Colorado City get that straight down fluffy snow. Lamar and Holly get that snow that starts in New Mexico or Nebraska and lands there. The lower Ark valley did get their fair share of snow this year. Both Rye and the area around Lamar got about 48 " of snow on that one storm, but Lamar had 9' to 13' drifts.

I'd say that the Cuchara and La Veta area rival Rye and San Isabel for the most snow.

I saw in the paper Sunday where the lower San Juan Valley- perhaps along the Rio Grande gets the most average moisture in the state. That surprised me.

If Rye and Colorado City got that much snow, where does all that water go? To water the golf course ?

Might be and if a more rural area where there is ground to soak into that's where it goes. I know our ground sure soaked it up.

I love living in Colorado City. The Wet Mountains are beautiful year round. We have a better grocery store now that it moved into a bigger building. The commute to Pueblo is not to bad. Can be a little tricky in winter. There is a lot to see. God has blessed the Greenhorn Valley/Mountain area with much beauty.

I agree with the above and I too might soon be reloacting out there from S. Indiana. The difference is I own a place South of Walsenburg I plan to retire to, but for the sake of making sure I get to work on time, I think Co city is where I want to be for now. Can anyone help me with a place to possibly rent, that is cheap, clean and I won't need to sign a contract with? I figure someone needs a house sitter in the area who can use a little extra income. I'm a federal employee, 50, married and I have a very nice home in Indiana I'll need to sell before I permanently relocate. No pets, bad habits, and I can be trusted to take care of your place as I would my own. Would need only until I can sell out east. I'm guessing between 2-10 months. I'll know in 2 weeks if I have the job I interviewed for. Thanks

If you were to compare the snow and lack of water details with Westcliffe, which one would come out worse? Trying to compare Rye and Beulah with Westcliffe, think that land looks more affordable in WC? 10 - 35 acres? Thanks for any advice

Default Looking at Property in Colorado City

Hi, I'm new here.... I'm thinking about buying some property in Colorado City. It's in an area called South Park Ranches on Rio Blanco Rd. Can anyone tell me about the area? This property is at a really good price, makes me think it may fall under the too good to be true catagory. My husbands family lives in Bailey and Parker. I've been out there 3 times, and absolutely fell in love with CO, but property in Parker is outrageously priced. How long of a drive would it be to see them, or to a job in Colorado Springs? I'd really appreciate any help anyone could offer. Thanks!!
