Colorado has an average of 333 days of sunshine every year. Our climate is ideal for anybody who is interested in either passive or active solar in their home.

McKenzie Junction sits at the top on Hard Scrabble between Wetmore and Westcliffe. From there you can head south toward Bishops Castle and Rye. It is literally a cross roads for people to meet up, bike rides to start and animals to stop traffic. McKenzie sits in Custer County and in the San Isabel Forest. Every where you look are views of Hardsrcabble Creek, Granite Walls and wild life. Normally not a destination but a point to travel thru or around, McKenzie Junction is a beautiful place to stop and enjoy the Wet Mountains.
