Not exploited — yet

Letter from William I. Jack

Development – April 1994 – Colorado Central Magazine – No. 2 – Page 5

We bought a 160-acre ranch near Westcliffe a couple of years ago, mainly because it is a beautiful area that has not been exploited. We are currently farming it from a distance with the great help of some wonderful people there, though we plan to become permanent residents there soon.

Development is inevitable, I suspect, but I hope it occurs at a moderate pace and with the diversity that preserves the region’s distinctive character.

Good luck. You could play a significant role in not only reflecting but establishing the identity of a rediscovered area, and thereby preserving its character in a way that has not occurred in many other such places and regions.
