Ranch Fire Season 2020 Update

Updated: Apr 13, 2021

Thank you to those of you who have reached out to see if we were ok during the most recent fire scare here in Gold Hill. As many of you know Colorado is experiencing an unprecedented fire season. On Saturday, October 17th, a fire broke out within a few miles of the Ranch two canyons north, at Calwood north of Jamestown. As we sat around the table eating lunch we discussed a pre-evacuation plan. We made some key phone calls in case we needed to move horses, we pulled a reserve of water, contacted some of our local staff folks about the possibility, and moved vehicles to be ready to go if we did need to leave in the night. However the Calwood fire moved east and north of Gold Hill and we did not have to evacuate that night or Sunday morning.
