Dean Skalla, the owner of The Great American Ranch, once lived in Beaver Mesa. His father was a logger and their family lived in this little cabin on the hill.
Dean went on to live in several other places but always held this little piece of property in his heart.
Years later, in 1999, Dean came back and purchased the land that he lived in as a child and the surrounding area.
The land is now used for cattle grazing, hunting, and family recreation. When on the land, you can find several traces of past living. Old chimney towers mark places of past homes and arrow heads mark old hunting ground.
The Great American Ranch offers a rich outdoor experience in the mountains of Colorado.
