Here's a legal description.

A tract of land located in a portion of the SE1/4 and the E1/2SW1/4 of Section 17, Township 5 North, Range 84 West of the 6th P.M., described as follows:

BEGINNING at the SE corner Section 17;
thence N 89°59'21" W, 1696.98 feet along the South line of the SE1/4 to a point

thence N 01°01'45" E, 710.71 feet along the West line of said E1/2SW1/4;
thence N 88°47'02" E, 1797.52 feet to a point within the Yampa River;
