About Us



Tom and Dorothy Evans both grew up on family farms. They settled in Colorado in the late 1960’s, have two children (son, Jack, and daughter, Krissy) and four grandchildren. All are active in ranch activities throughout the year.


Tom is an engineer with over 40 years of experience in the petroleum industry. As such, he has started and operated several companies and has received multiple patents for innovative oilfield water recycle technology. Dorothy has worked in various capacities with several companies and has been managing Tom’s oilfield service companies for over 25 years.


Nighthawk Ranch was conceived in the late 1990’s as a way for Tom and Dorothy to give back to the community by providing a safe healing place for children recovering from cancer to regain self-esteem and build hope and confidence in their future. Because of their fond childhood memories of farm life, they designed Nighthawk Ranch to provide a unique high mountain working ranch experience that encourages achievement through a variety of activities. At the ranch, renewal is supported by fun and challenging activities, good nutrition, exposure to animals and wildlife, good camaraderie, and the spiritual uplifting that nature provides.
