While sitting on the deck of your home on this lot, one can reach an understanding as they look to the vast expanse to the north why Butch Cassidy and the Wild Bunch chose that area to hide out. Even though they were trying to lay low, the Wild Bunch couldn’t resist the call of Shorty Anderson’s saloon in Steamboat’s Red Light District. It was there his gang debated enlisting to fight in the Spanish-American War or remaining wild. Needless to say drink and the wild life prevailed.
Nowadays, the oakbrush and sage are a favorite sanctuary for the elk herd that calls Marabou home. They too enjoy the view from on high and watch the valley below for the perfect time to come down and graze in the evenings. With only the elk and mule deer for company, this homesite is the perfect mountain retreat.
