Aspen Rose Ranch is a small community of 35-acre parcels in Las Animas County, Colorado, at the western end of Wet Canyon. The Ranch sits at about 8,500 to 9,000 feet above sea level, and is home to abundant wildlife among its gambel oaks, firs, pines, aspens and spruce trees. Within its boundaries are forests, meadows, springs, rock outcroppings, and amazing views of the Spanish Peaks and the Culebra Range of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains.
Aspen Rose Ranch was originally part of the Mendine Ranch, homesteaded in the early 1800s by Constanti Mendine. Originally, the family owned about 3,000 acres; they raised cattle, chicken, rabbits, and potatoes.
Old maps of the area show the town of Hicks, which boasted a post office between 1895 and 1918. Reportedly, the original homestead on the Aspen Rose Ranch was the site of the Hicks Post Office until the mail route moved to Weston many years ago.
