The Great Sand Dunes National Park is to the north, San Isabel National Forest is a short drive east, the Rio Grande is 20 miles to the west. Recreation abounds in this gorgeous high altitude valley. The Alamosa Wildlife Refuge and many other public lands are all close by. Imagine camping, using your ATV or building a cabin on your beautiful land. Think of the memories you will have of hiking the national park and forest. You can live off the grid if you desire or connect to the power poles on the northern side of the property. It’s a delightful place to get away from it all, imagine decompressing as you drive to your own private getaway.
