Party season isn’t limited to December—June brings its own flurry of graduations, weddings, Father’s Day cookouts, family reunions, and summer solstice soirees. One memorable site for such festivities is Devil’s Thumb Ranch, nestled just below the Continental Divide in Colorado’s high country, which draws thousands of visitors each year with its stunningly beautiful scenery (think mountain meadows rimmed by lodgepole forests and rocky peaks).
The ranch’s food is equally impressive—an artful combination of local, fresh ingredients cooked up to honor their inherent healthfulness and flavor. It’s no wonder that hundreds of couples choose to get married there. Whatever your cause for celebration, enjoy these small-plate dishes from the Devil’s Thumb chefs.
