A visually splendid look at the southern tip of the peninsula in Lake San Cristobal that connects to two islands via a suspension bridge. Hinsdale County will soon close on the sale of the land and add to the lake’s public land access.

A unique piece of land in Colorado's most remote county will be preserved for the public. We first talked about this "island escape" in December when Hinsdale County was raising money to buy an archipelago from a private owner. That purchase is now official and the county's working on next steps.
