Just Ranch in Granby, CO

My new job, located at the YMCA of the Rockies at Snow Mountain Ranch, sits on more than 5,200 acres of pure, Colorado wilderness with rolling hills, steep mountain peaks, rich forests and cold rivers and streams, Most of this land in which I live and work on, is untouched and undiscovered. Alongside an old, deep gold mine, are two homesteads from the late 1800s. Some of the first residents of this region in Grand County, lived on this property. Looking left provides with you views of the Continental Divide while directly ahead lay the Just Ranch, finished in 1885. Bunk houses, chicken coups, tool shops, cow barns and tons of old farming equipment. History still stands here.
