In the beginning
Ana and I had this idea of escaping from the city and building us a future retirement home that would also have some income. We searched the areas of southern Utah conveniently close to the high country and also close to the desert. We fell in love with Bullion Canyon right on the Paiute ATV trail. The Paiute ATV trail was in its infancy then and consisted of thousands of miles of ATV trails that went legally through high mountains and deserts. The property we chose was populated with Ponderosa Pine, narrow-leaf cottonwood, Gambels Oak, juniper, pinion pine, and beautiful sage and rabbit brush. It had a beautiful little stream that meandered through our meadows with native brown and rainbow trout. The locals said we were were crazy to pay 2000 per acre for this. None of the property in the area was worth more than 200 per acre. We ventured forward and built our building. It has a cozy cabin downstairs for us with two car garage. Upstairs is separate full three bedroom cabin with raised ceiling and decorated very nicely with new furniture and nice fixtures. We have been able to keep this cabin rented pretty much rented from May through October to Paiute Trail ATV enthusiasts who come from all over the USA. We added 3 Full-hookup RV spots, also.
