In 2003 we trailered  our 1500 Honda Goldwing to Colorado, and rented a house about 28 miles outside of Durango. It was in a little town named Vallecito (pronounced Vi-Ceto). It is beside the Vallecito Reservoir.  The house we rented is just north of the reservoir about 2 miles on the Vallecito River. The house was 2 story and had 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, living room/den, 2 car garage and a game room. It also had a covered patio, and a large deck that went out over the river. Even though it was in a small community and had a house two one side of it, and one across the river, with all the trees around, it was quite secluded.

In 2002 there was a wildfire known as the "Missionary Ridge" fire that went through part of Vallecito. During the fighting of that fire a Forestry Ranger that lived in, and grew up in Vallecito was killed. A chainsaw artist took several of the trees that were destroyed by the fire and carved figures in them commemorating the events during the fighting of that fire. One of them was to memorialize the Ranger that died.
