Cuchara Foundation Board
Tracey discovered Cuchara and the Highway of Legends 16 years ago after a job interview in southern Colorado. She was amazed by the unique natural beauty and unspoiled views. After moving to the area full-time in 2021, she found a home at the Cuchara Foundation. She's excited about preserving the natural beauty of the area and elevating its history through education. You can find her on daily walks with husky mix Ivory at Cuchara Mountain Park.
In May of 2022, TR became part of the Cuchara Foundation, taking on the role of treasurer. TR, his wife, Ashley, and their two daughters, Delaney and Rosamund, have been part of the Cuchara Valley community since late 2020 and have called Cuchara home since May of 2022. They intend to be active community members for decades to come.
TR loves to learn and is always curious. He serves on active duty in the U.S. Army and will retire with 20 years of military service in the coming years. TR has traveled and lived on five continents; he remains firm that other than El Chaltén, Argentina, there is no other place in the world that offers such comparable natural beauty as the Cuchara Valley.
