My husband and I recently drove to Colorado Springs, one of many such trips over the years.

Every single time we go over Trout Creek Pass and see the magnificent open space of Chubb Park I think of Joe Cogan, the local rancher who obtained a perpetual conservation easement on 507 acres.

He probably could have made a fortune subdividing that land, but he obviously cares more about preserving our precious land than making money.

Thank you, Mr. Cogan, for saving this gorgeous area forever.
