Is it strange? Perhaps. Could it use a cleanup? Yep. Is there potential? Absolutely!
10 REMOTE acres in Sweetwater County, WY. If you want to be around humans, this property is not for you. If sharing land with the local antelope and elk are more your style, this is for you. Miles from the nearest home, yet easy to find once you know where to go. Includes a dilapidated structure with a huge fireplace largely intact.
Experience the amazing sunsets to the west and pristine views of the Ferris Mountains to the north. Beautiful climate spring through fall. At over 6,800 feet, you’ll enjoy relatively cool summer highs and cool nights. Bring some firewood and get cozy near the fireplace! Winters are reserved for those braver than me! Excellent base camp for the many recreational destinations within a short day’s trip distance. Borders 640 acres of Bureau of Land Management property on the south side which further enhances the privacy and hunting opportunities!
Some uses would be a hunting camp, grazing land for horses and cattle, RV and camping spot, ATV riding, a bugout spot, or simply to hold as an asset or inflation hedge.
