Three Creeks West:
Boulder Mountain Retreat Virtual Field Trip
Our retreat is in the foothills of Boulder Mountain at 7500 feet elevation. We have pines on our property and a little higher on the mountain are Aspen trees. The winter days can be in the 20-30s with a little snow and the summers the 70s-80s. Our property is part of Three Creeks West area where the Boulder, Birch, and Cottonwood creeks come together. The view above is to the southwest and 50,000 acres of US Forest and Boulder Mountain (11,217 feet) which is part of Aquarius Plateau. It's known as the North Slopes of the Dixie National Forest.

We love the wash that runs down the middle of the property. It's fun to explore the wide variety of geology.

This video shows the view from the southwest corner toward the southeast, northeast, and northwest. For some reason I keep saying Elm Tree... that would be actually be Pine Tree on the building site. Also, it's 40 acres, not 450 acres that is the other property to the northwest.
