Slash Jay Slash Ranch
This beautiful, working cattle ranch in the heart of the
Colorado Rocky Mountains, bordering on Rocky Mountain
National Forest land, between Granby and Grand Lake,
was the place to share special times with special friends
over the years.
There were even some pretty wild parties, by all accounts,
but we wouldn't know the particulars of those!
There were enough beds for plenty of guests and all of
the ranch hands, cowboys and caretakers!
Somehow the memories of shoveling you-know-what out of
stalls, washing tons of dishes from the guests and ranch
hands, changing what seemed like mountains of beds after
the guests left, preparing food for 50+ people, hauling
hay out to the cattle in the early dawn in the dead of
winter... all those details have faded a little bit from
With hay rides, cookouts, fishing for rainbow trout, skeet
shooting, shuffleboard, miniature golf, swingsets, horseback
riding, branding season, hunting season, swimming at
the solar-heated pool, inner-tubing down the irrigation
ditch, hiking up Half-Moon Mountain, building hay tunnels
in the barn, riding out to the old Joslin Place, exploring
Cow Camp in the summer on the cattle drives, well, this
place was a piece of paradise on earth!
