This is the most unique property we have had the opportunity to offer. The location is one of a kind as the property is situated in a gap cutting through the mountains where Indian Draw – a seasonal stream flows west-to-east as it empties into the flatlands to the east. The mountains, known to the locals as Separation Rim, is the line running along the west side of US Highway 287. The western side of the property includes incredible rock outcroppings rising over 200 feet above the valley below. The views of the Ferris Mountains to the northeast are stunning.
When you are standing on this property breathing in the clean air and feeling the cool breeze on your face, and you get an appreciation for the unaltered beauty that wonderful Wyoming has to offer. It gives you a true sense of adventure.
