Battlement Mesa, CO

“We had dozens of friends at the beginning.  We’d have parties. We originally rented a Mesa Ridge townhome while our home was under construction. And in those little units up there we often had parties of up to 60 people at a time. And it was great. And then when we built this house we still had the same group. We’d say, okay this Friday is yours, next is ours, and so on.  Very often we’d go down to Parachute as a group when they had more restaurants than they have now.  It was wonderful but most of our friends have now moved somewhere else because they didn’t want to deal with the oil and gas development.”
