Chaffee County, CO

Chaffee County is located in central Colorado. Back in the mid 1960s my parents bought a one-acre piece of land in Alpine Townsite and over the course of the next decade or so, my dad built a small cabin on the land. Our family vacationed there every year until the 1980s when we kids went to college. My parents are now retired in Chaffee County and live in a community called Mesa Antero, about 20 minutes from the location of the cabin, which they have since sold. Of course I am biased, but I think this part of Colorado is especially scenic and spectacular. I hope you enjoy the photos as much as I do, and I hope that some day your travels take you to this wonderful place.
