The Telluride Daily Planet says that the billionaire has no plans to develop the property. She bought it from Silver Mountain Industries which had planned to put a neighborhood of large and expensive houses on the land, angering nature enthusiasts who enjoy the beautiful untouched land. It's not known exactly how many acres were sold or how much Whitman and her husband, neurosurgeon Griffith Harsh IV paid for the land.
