The Northern portion of San Luis Valley
Ranches north of Hwy 160 rises gently as the terrain goes up the side of Mt. Blanca. The parcels in the higher elevations
have 1,000 year old Pinon trees. The higher you go, the rockier the roads become, but as you are heading toward the mountain,
the view is wonderful and you don't even mind. The Valley view is also wonderful day or night.
South of Hwy 160 - the parcels tend to be flat and have less
vegetation and wildlife - antelope, coyotes, the occasional lost deer or elk, many types of birds, and yes, we can't lie,
their are snakes everywhere in this area. The road system is gravel but marked fairly well as long as the parcel you choose
is in Unit 20,21,22. Because this are is close to Blanca, Colorado, you can get mail there, supplies, and eat at Lu's
Cafe. There are still wonderful views in many directions and the parcels are less expensive.
