Maybe you should consider living on your own. You could live in the Denver metro area and at least be able to visit your dad when he moves to Colorado, assuming he lives somewhere in/near the Front Range.

Interesting thread.

Owning a "real" ranch in Colorado yet living near a cosmo place with tons of restaurant choices isn't something I see happening unless you have a few million plus and can afford pricey land near ski resorts.

I don't think a lot of people really understand Colorado topography and geography. It's either really urban or really rural and not a lot of transition in between like you might see back east.

So yes you can get a "ranch" property with acreage but you will be in the boonies, a long long way from schools and Outback Steakhouse and plenty of jobs.
