Yesterday I was showing cabins in Crystal Lakes – Crystal Lakes is a mountain subdivision in Red Feather Lakes, Colorado. It was a chilly day in Red Feather and as the day went on it was getting cooler. A drizzling rain that would certainly turn into a light snow after sundown began to fall as we neared the last cabin on the tour.
Actually, appointments were made to see more cabins, but we simply ran out of time because each stop before had rock outcroppings and meadows to explore and jaw dropping views that demanded silent deep breathes and extra time to drink it all in….all of which prevented us from moving forward in a timely fashion. It’s a beautiful place- what else can I say.
We drove up the long driveway toward the last cabin of the day and at the top we met this majestic bull moose, together with a mama moose and her calf! Mama and her calf quickly moved away from the cabin, but the bull was not about to have us interrupt his grazing time.
At one point he moved into the trees, his huge antlers loudly cracking against the trees and small branches in his path, but soon returned to his original spot within our view. Never mind the cabin for sale, or showing schedule- the buyers and I were thrilled and took the extra time to watch this amazing creature.
Finally, we decided to go into the cabin, which is lovely 2 bedroom, 2 bath home, with an updated kitchen, golden aspen views seen from the large windows in the living room, a warm cozy wood burning stove in the corner, and light pine walls and ceilings to provide the necessary mountain ambiance.
I think I said more than once…..”and it even comes with moose!”
