It's no secret that Colorado's housing market is pretty much the worst — $500,000 basically gets you a studio apartment.

MILE HIGH PRICES: Colorado's Cost of Living is Worse Than New York's

Okay, I'm obviously kidding, but the Centennial State is ridiculously expensive when it comes to real estate. To cope, in a moment of either ignorance or manifestation, I turn to the Internet, searching for mansions I can't afford with abandon.

It was during my last online escapade that I stumbled upon an absolute beauty: a $55 million, 22,684 square foot ranch in Aspen.

According to Zillow, the Merry Go Ranch is a 10-bedroom, 13-bathroom paradise with an eight-stall barn and 21.38 acres for raising horses. It's not exactly the Dutton Ranch, but I think this is as close to Yellowstone living as you can get.

Located at 1650 McClain Flats Road, the ranch is also made for athletes, featuring a 13,000 square foot gym complete with tennis ball courts, racquetball courts, and a running track. There's a basketball court outside too.

If sports aren't your thing, you can relax in the indoor pool or in front of the living room fireplace, which takes up an entire wall. Take a trip out to one of your backyards and bask in some of the best mountain views you'll ever see.
