About the Area

Here are some useful links and information about the area (links open in a new page). The yurts are just a few miles north of Creede, Colorado in Mineral County.

  • Badass Factoid: Creede and Phoenix Ridge Yurts are nestled inside the La Garita Caldera, site of the largest known explosive eruption ON EARTH! The resulting deposit, known as the Fish Canyon tuff, has a volume of approximately 1,200 cubic miles (5,000 km3), enough material to fill Lake Michigan (in comparison, the May 18, 1980 eruption of Mt. St. Helens was only 0.25 cubic miles (1.0 km3) in volume). Read more about it at Wikipedia.com Before the Yurts
