The Rampart Range portion of the Rocky Mountains provide a beautiful backdrop while the meadows and rolling hills embrace homes in this beautiful rural mountain area known as the Tri-Lakes. The town of Monument, formerly one of the earliest railway stops in the region, provides delightful small business shopping and restaurants.
