Description

Visiting the San Luis Valley will give you a glimpse of how the west looked hundreds of years ago thanks to the preservation of the land. There are thousands of acres of protected public land to be enjoyed by all including Wildlife Refuges, State Parks, National Forests, and the Rio Grande River. The un-commercialized, raw land is what draws people to Southern Colorado.

You can have 4.6 acres of your own historic Colorado land. Here you can stare off in the distance, over the open plains, to see mountain ranges bordering the valley in all directions. The Sangre de Cristo Mountains are to the east and the San Juans to the west. Mt. Blanca is the 4th highest peak in all of Colorado and stands towering in the northeast section of the valley. It is impressive to say the least.

There is always the historical sites to visit, Fort Garland where you can see the adobe buildings where Kit Carson once stood with hundreds of servicemen to protect the settlers, the Denver & Rio Grande Railroad Museum to see the famous Engine 169, the San Luis Valley History Museum and see displays of an original trading post but there is much more. The area is known for its geological phenomena as well. The Great Sand Dunes boast the highest dune in the country. Sand sled or surf down the sand after crossing the Medano Creek. Zapata Falls is a 250 ft waterfall in the high desert. The winter months turn the falls into an icy masterpiece. The natural hot springs bring people from all over for relaxation and their healing properties.There are several reservoirs in the valley and the famed Rio Grande River providing water recreation such as boating, kayaking, fishing, tubing, and canoeing. Hunting is popular with sportsmen for both large and small game. There are oddities such as the Alligator Farm and UFO watchtower. Hikers, climbers, and off-roaders love the trails all through the high country. There is definitely not a shortage of things to do and see here but I would say the most common pastime in all of the region is star gazing. Yep, this is a Dark Sky Park and the stars take over after dark and the sky becomes an observatory. The lack of light pollution provides perfect viewing of the galaxies beyond. The mountains by day, and the heavens by night. You won’t find a better place to feel immersed in nature than here in Colorado.

The town of Fort Garland is just 16 minutes from the property, Alamosa is 41 minutes. All the supplies necessary for off-grid living can be obtained easily. Access to the property is effortless with well maintained dirt roads. The land sits just a mile of Hwy 159. You will be less than 4 hrs from Pueblo, Colorado Springs and Denver.

Come enjoy the west. Pull your camper out or build a mountain cabin in San Luis, Colorado. $7,949 cash price or owner financing is available with $750 and 60 monthly payments of $148.
