You can look up to see Mt. Blanca and Mt. Lindsey towering over the top of you from here. The two 14ers are up close and personal. There aren’t properties or commercial buildings between you and the mountains. If you are looking for a piece of Colorado, you won’t find any place with more stunning scenery.
With 4.85 acres, you have space to spread out and keep your distance from any neighbors. The ground is level and ready to build or pull a camper out. The roads are well maintained and easily accessible all year round. The intersection of hwy 150 and 160 is only 4.5 miles away giving you the convenience of getting to town. Even the most prepared off-gridders need supplies. The small town of Blanca is 11 minutes east, Fort Garland is 16 minutes east and will have gas stations, Dollar General, a hardware store, and a few restaurants. Alamosa is 24 minutes west and can provide small city amenities such as big box stores, medical facilities, hotels, restaurants, and shopping. There are a lot of local activities in the area to participate in. There is a lot of culture and history to be experienced in the San Luis Valley. The Farmers Markets and roadside stands are the best place to get fresh meat, produce, and other goods. There are local artisan shops with fantastic pieces for sale. The brewery provides great food and beverage as do the other restaurants in town.
The Great Sand Dunes is just 20 miles north and is a geological phenomenon that can’t be missed. Sled down the sand and play in the country’s biggest sand box. They encourage you to visit at night to see the stars. Because of this area’s void of light pollution, it has been deemed a Dark Sky Park. You can see the stars as if in an observatory. People travel the country to stargaze here especially during the meteor showers and other astronomical events. Zapata Falls is also right up the road, 18 miles. You can take the short hike to see a beautiful 25 foot waterfall in the middle of the valley. In the summer, the water rushes down the rocky crevasse and in the winter it makes an ice sculpture that has to be seen to believe. There is a Colorado alligator rescue to view the prehistoric animals up close and an alien watchtower in Moffit if extraterrestrials are your thing. Lots to see here.
Outdoor enthusiasts also love the area for hiking, biking, climbing, and trail riding. There are watersports in the Rio Grande and reservoirs. Hunters love the area for big and small game alike. Off-road drivers get excited for all the trails and rocky terrain. Skiers can take the short drive to Taos for fresh powder. Lots to do here as well.
If you are like many and want to get back to nature to relax, you can find yourself a nice spot of sun to enjoy the valley. There is an average of 300 days of sunshine here. Even when it snows, there are clear skies and sunshine which really cuts out seasonal depression people experience up north. Because the weather is so crisp and cool throughout the summer, the southerners come during the summer for a reprieve from the blazing heat. Pull up a chair and enjoy the peace and quiet. No heavy traffic, no busy neighborhoods, no overcrowding, no light pollution, just you and the Colorado landscape. Slow down, take a breath of clean air, and finally relax.
Campfires in the evening listening to the coyotes howl and coffee in the morning, staring up at your mountain watching the wild horses run through the valley is just what the doctor ordered.
