Jeff managed the Zapata Ranch cattle operations until 2014.

Next week a few of us are going to scout a new place to possibly take pack trips into. The spot includes two very secluded lakes that not many hikers make it into and the reason is that it’s very rough and is a long distance from only a couple trailheads. The fishing is unbeatable, the lakes being located above timberline containing a cutthroat trout native to Colorado. The scenery is also unrivaled, being of the most rugged anywhere. This scouting trip will help us determine whether or not it’s doable to take folks who are not exactly seasoned riders or hikers. It quite possibly may only be available to the devoted outdoorsmen that want to see the back of the backcountry.
