Mount Blanca Base Camp

Great mountain views in all directions and perfect for “Off the grid” living or just a place to come for a week and camp out. It is accessible by county maintained roads for most of the year except for periods of heavy snow, which is normally gone with a few days of sunshine. There are few trees here in the valley with mainly sage brush so don’t worry about having to keep up any kind of landscape. Just get out and explore with your ATV or horse. The nearest town is San Luis with a few grocery stores and a Dollar store but your best bet for larger box stores is in Alamosa which is 55 miles to the northwest. You don’t have many neighbors right up under you. The closest ski area (Red River) is 45 miles to the southeast in New Mexico. You can hunt on some BLM land which is 2 hours from this lot. There is also plenty of managed hunts for Bighorn Sheep, Elk and Mule Deer on private land (mainly the Trinchera Ranch, an expansive 172,000 acre world class hunting ranch) to the east of you in the Sangre De Cristo mountain range. There is great fishing in the northern reaches of the Rio Grande River near Del Norte and Monte Vista.

This property has easy access via county maintained dirt roads and is less than 20 minutes from Fort Garland. The San Luis Valley is one of the highest and largest intermountain valleys in the world. Bordered on the East by the Sangre De Cristo Mountains and the San Juans on the West, you will find a multitude of historical, cultural and recreational activities including: Monte Vista & Alamosa Wildlife Refuges, San Luis Lake State Park, Great Sand Dunes National Park & Preserve, Penitente Canyon, Thunder Mountain Speedway, Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad, Colorado Gator Farm, Del Norte, Monte Vista, etc. The San Luis Valley is one of Colorado’s last large agricultural areas. It is also is one of the nation’s largest potato producing areas, and produces a lot of barley and hay. If you drink beer brewed in Colorado (either Coors or Bud), chances are good the barley it was brewed from was grown in the San Luis Valley. The agricultural output of the Valley is amazing, since it sits at around 7,500+ elevation and has a relative short growing season. It averages generally less than 8 inches of precipitation per year and is totally reliant on irrigation. Winters can be very cold, but with relatively little snow on the valley floor. The valley is also cool in the summer with few days topping 90 degrees. The oldest settlements and the oldest continuously operating church in Colorado are in the Valley. There are some great local restaurants where one can find authentic southern Colorado/northern New Mexico “New Mexican” food. There are many neat things to see in the Valley–the Great Sand Dunes, an alligator farm (really!), the Stations of the Cross sculptures in San Luis (an absolute must-not-miss, regardless of one’s religious persuasion), the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad and the Rio Grande Scenic Railroad (both not to be missed), just to name a few.
