Chico Basin Ranch

Martha Perez-Sanz

Chico Basin Ranch sits on the high prairie just 30 miles southeast of Colorado Springs. The sprawling family-run, working cattle ranch spans 87,000 acres and is home to animals both tame and wild. KRCC's Martha Perez-Sanz wanted to know more about the life of a modern day 'cowboy' and has this audio postcard from a visit to the Ranch.
