Blanca towers at over 14,000 feet, highlighting the views from many properties in the area. To the west, the San Luis Valley is a fertile High Plains Desert, roughly 7,500 feet above sea level.

The Ranches are located about 5 miles to the south and east of Fort Garland, Colorado. This is one of the bigger lots in the subdivision and it also backs up to the greenbelt!
