Yuma - Eastern Colorado
The city of Yuma is located in northeastern Colorado covering 3,000 square miles. The area is known for its Agricultural community, with a growing season of approximately 138 days. The availability of water from the Ogallala aquifer, and center pivot irrigation systems create this long growing season. The elevation in the area ranges from 3,400 feet to 5,000 feet. Fishing, hunting and golf are popular activities in the area.
Nearby is the town of Wray, an agricultural based economy supported by corn, wheat and cattle. The beautiful lakes and ponds offer outdoor sports, fishing and hunting. South of Wray is a battleground site commemorating a battle between the Indians and incoming settlers in 1868.
