Bear Basin Ranch is an 1890’s working ranch nestled in the heart of the Wet Mountains in Southern Colorado and overlooks the Wet Valley to the west and runs parallel to the Sangre de Cristo range and the Sangre de Cristo National Wilderness Area. Bear Basin Ranch was first utilized as a hunting ground for roaming bands of buffalo hunters, then as a summer home to the Mountain Utes. The Ranch was later settled as part of the Silver Park Prospect in the 1860’s, later becoming a homestead, cattle ranch, and finally, the home of our 60-head Appaloosa and Quarter horses.
