The Ranch

The High Lonesome Ranch (HLR) comprises over 400 square miles of deeded and permitted Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Public Lands, located north of Grand Junction, Colorado, between DeBeque on the east and Loma on the west. HLR comprises lands that have been in agricultural and ranching uses since the mid 1800s and experienced some energy development in the mid to late 1900s. Elevations at the ranch rise from approximately 4,000 to 9,200 feet. Habitats range from desert to sub-alpine on high mesas, including farm fields, spring-fed creeks, wetlands, ponds, sagebrush, juniper, oak, aspen, pine and fir forests.
