We just returned from spending a week at Buford, east of Meeker on the White River.
It’s one of our favorite spots in Colorado, offering great mountain scenery, access to the Flat Tops and surrounding areas, and a cool getaway from the heat of the Grand Valley in the summer.
That’s owners Tom and Dianne Tucker outside the old Buford store, which has been closed for a number of years. But the Tuckers still rent out the old cabins near the store, and maintain a small RV park on their property, right along the White River.
I’ll have more on the history of Buford in my next column. Meanwhile, below is a link to my Palisade peach column, and the valuable effects of the Bookcliffs on the peach industry.
Also, I’m starting to build an archive of my past history columns from The Daily Sentinel. Go to “My History Columns” in the menu at the top of this page. I only have 2013 columns posted so far, but will continue working to get subsequent years posted.
