The backround: Crazy former hippy uncle ray gets sick of western new york and flees buffalo new york to move to sunny fort collins colorado leaving his family and friends behind. He gets a job and lives in beautiful fort collins, described as "where the girls take off their clothes for fun".... 20 Years later he finds this proporty in the middle of the woods and buys it. three years later he gets layed off with a huge mortage to pay. So instead he sells his house in fort collins and moves out to the woods. Two years later I happen to be driving across the country and my parents make me drive out to check on him.
The area is something people don't even know exisits. Out deep in the woods there is a dirt road going up the mountains. In fact its a few miles from rocky mountain national park. The community is a rouge collection of mountain men, ex hippies (uncle ray), and survivolist nut jobs. In fact one of the residence was killed by the FBI after going nuts and having a shootout. One of the problems in this community is that most of the people are poor and have no survival skills, so a lot of pollution is occuring which is forcing the Enviromental Protection Agency to shut the place down.
Today: Uncle Rays credit card debt has caused uncle ray to declare bankruptsy. Enjoy the pictures of this pristine "Cabin" in the woods.
