Trinidad, Colo (PRWEB) October 16, 2012
It takes some lifestyle adjustments when moving from the conveniences of big city life to the high passes in the Rocky Mountains. After many conversations with families and homeowners enjoying the bounty of mountain living, Peter Chase created a just published account on his company website about one couple’s experience with mountain life.
The couple began their search on the internet for some Southern Colorado Land that could be found somewhere relatively close in travel time distance away from Texas. They ended up viewing some beautiful photos published online of an area called Timber Ridge at Cordova Pass. After making arrangements, a live visit was conducted which lead to a realization that the initial photo images viewed didn’t do the place justice.
Peter Chase interviewed a Dallas, Texas longtime resident about sharing real mountain life experiences after living for many years in a suburb of Dallas with four regional malls located nearby. To go from that environment to a remote mountain is sort of a culture shock. It takes some time to adjust as described in this story about life at Timber Ridge at Cordova Pass.
For many people, looking for a new place to live, especially in a new climate or environment, can be a significant undertaking and adventure into the unfamiliar. Being outside more can certainly improve one’s attitude and outlook. One of the most treasured areas people are stumbling on to is Cordova Pass in southern Colorado, situated at the base of the West Spanish Peak surrounded by San Isabel National Forest.
The nearest towns of Cuchara and La Veta are 25 and 30 minutes away respectively. The nearest city would be Walsenburg, Colorado which is about 40 minutes driving time away, which takes some getting used to as opposed to simply hopping in the car and making a quick trip to the local grocery store or shopping mall living as in urban living.
Internet, TV, cell phone coverage, and utilities can become questions that need to be carefully researched and deliberated when considering country living. Access to utilities at affordable rates is an especially important issue. Some mountain developments in Colorado such as Timber Ridge already have underground electric power and great cell phone reception so there’s less of a challenge to deal with. Timber Ridge at Cordova Pass is set in a pristine southern Colorado mountain setting situated in an alpine zone surrounded by the Sangre de Cristo Mountains.
Getting up in the morning and seeing a peaceful mountain view and some local wildlife can be quite rewarding and entertaining to visitors. People don’t realize just how much wildlife can be seen in the mountains if they just observe closely enough.
