The Sangre de Cristo Ranches were developed, by Malcolm Forbes (founder of Forbes magazine), in the heart of the Sangre de Cristo Mountain range. Mt. Blanca towers at over 14,000 feet, highlighting the views from many properties in the area. To the west, the San Luis Valley is a fertile High Plains Desert, roughly 7,500 feet above sea level. The landscape within 44,000 acre Ranches varies from sagebrush and Pinon at the lower elevations, and Aspen and various tall pine varieties above 9,000 ft. The Ranches are located about 5 miles to the south and east of Fort Garland, Colorado.

This parcel is located in unit V, developed by Malcolm Forbes. The parcel has a mixture of sage, small cactus and desert grasses and vegetation. The property is flat and is easily accessed from Fedderate road that the property borders.
