About our history
Go Above and Beyond
In 1845, facing mounting debts, Texas sold its claims that extended to the northernmost boundaries. That faithful decision will ever haunt the minds of Texas outdoor enthusiasts.
Texans sold some of the best mountains for skiing, snowboarding, mountain biking, rafting, hiking, and camping in the country to the United States of America. In exchange for a mere ten million dollars and some debt relief.
The US went to war with Mexico to guarantee those boundaries
The western boundary lines ran to the Rio Grande all the way to Santa Fe and up the river to the headwaters in southern Colorado – near Pole Creek Mountain in the San Juan Mountains of southwestern Colorado.
From there, the western boundary ran due north to the 42nd parallel in Wyoming near present-day Rawlings, Wyoming. The Arkansas River was the northern and eastern boundary. The eastern edge of Texas in present day Colorado ran from near the Arkansas Headwaters straight up from just southwest of Leadville, Colorado, north to near Hanna, Wyoming.
These are the areas Texas sold off, and to this day, Coloradoans believe Texans are invading. …But seriously Texans love to travel, and the cooler and dryer climates of New Mexico, Colorado, and Wyoming are ideal getaways for a carload of tourists…
Well, Texas can’t get it back now, but when we do travel there, remember to be a good neighbor, respect quiet hours, put the fires out, and leave it as you found it!
