Situated on the edge of South Park on a peninsula jutting into Eleven Mile Reservoir. The Adobe is surrounded by the Rockies.  Walk out the back gate and enter Eleven Mile State Park.  Hike to areas on the reservoir and into meadows, rock formations and a forest of Aspens, Spruce, Bristle Cone and Ponderosa Pines where the public rarely goes.  In the middle and late summer season the wild flowers abound and in early fall the Aspen change to brilliant golden splendor and in all seasons wildlife is abundant including large populations of water fowl and all varieties of birds and raptors.  Visit the Florissant Fossil beds only 20 minutes away for the unique experience of seeing the remains of an ancient Sequoia Forest.  Ride a train, check out the gambling halls or go on a gold mine tour in Cripple Creek .  Enjoy antiquing in Guffey, rafting on the Arkansas River or skiing in Summit County.  It's all nearby.
