I wanted share information about an essay contest where the prize is a mountain home in Red Feathers, Colorado. The entry fee is $100 and all you need to do is send in a 500 word essay (on any topic) for a chance to win the house. Since Red Feathers is only an hour from my house, I took a road trip up there to check out the house. It is pretty nice. I peeked in the windows and the interior looks to be in good shape. It does not have a lot of land around it, but it is close to lakes and it is in the mountains. The deadline is July 14. Here is the link if you are interested in submitting an essay.
