"A remote Colorado town"

Moffat is a tiny, remote town southern central Colorado. With only 116 residents, there are no businesses or restaurants. The homes are all laid out in a rural fashion and even traveling to the closest, decent sized town of Alamosa takes over 40 minutes. Over half of the population works in accommodation and food services, and there are bed & breakfast places as well as outdoor sporting attractions, such as hunting.

The median household income in Moffat is $17,665 with over 42% living in poverty. A median priced detached house costs about $195,500, so the cost of living isn't good, nor are there any jobs. The unemployment rate here is higher than I've seen in any town and it likely won't change any time soon.
