Historic Ute Council Tree


This huge, majestic cottonwood dates back to 1802 and is a Colorado landmark. It is dedicated to Chief Ouray and his wife, Chipeta, who strove to keep peace between the Utes and the White Man.
Chief Ouray met with White settlers under this very tree. His wife is believed to be the only Ute woman ever allowed to sit in on council meetings.
