Quartz Valley Ranch is located in Chase Gulch, Gilpin County, between Central City and Apex, off Highway 119. Now the occasional home to some semi-wild horses and cattle, the ranch has been in existence since the heyday of Central City, Colorado. Photographer John N. Roberts captured two horses near an old tiller on the ranch in December 2007, using a Canon EOS Rebel XTI camera with a 75mm lens. Roberts is a partner with Denver Investment Advisors LLC. He occasionally lectures on obscure investment- and trust-related topics.
