Ed McLaughlin was 15 years old when he saw the Rocky Mountains for the first time.
“I went to Philmont Scout Ranch, south of here, and hiked and fell in love with the area,” he said.
Years later, McLaughlin’s brother bought a lot in the Forbes Park neighborhood in Costilla County, nestled near the Spanish Peaks in southern Colorado.
