The tiny town of Rye Colorado sits on highway 165 in the San Isabel forest. Once named Table Top Mountain the name was shortened to save the post master grief. A beautifully forested area, and home of the rediscovered Green Back Cut Throat Trout and Bishops Castle. The population of approx 200 swells with tourists in the summer months. While visiting the area go to Lake Isabel and Beckwith Reservoir, Camp, day hike or rent a cabin.
Homes in the area sell for between $25,000 for a converted cabin to $1.5 for something a little bit bigger. Just 35 miles south of the city of Pueblo but it feels like a totally different place.
