You've found Colorado's best kept Secret! Please allow me to help faciliate your dream of a life in the North Fork Valley.
My wife and I moved to the North Fork Valley 10 years ago in search of a small, friendly community to raise a family. Our requirements were lots of water, mountains, and fresh air....and we found what we were looking for! We love to mountainbike Paonia's excellent trail system, float the area rivers, and explore all the gorgeous nooks and crannies of Western Colorado. The food produced in this valley is hands down some of the best in the world! I am involved with the regional public radio station KVNF, Paonia's historic Paradise theater, and volunteer at Paonia's Bicycle Co-op.I grew up on Colorado's western slope and have made it my home for over 20 years. Please allow me to share my experience and knowledge of our little slice of paradise and help you find the nest you have always dreamed of!
