The San Luis Valley has a well-deserved reputation as a sportsman's paradise. Herds of elk, deer and wild turkey roam the subdivision of Rio Grande Ranchos. Fish from the Rio Grande River are plentiful. Wild horses are also frequent visitors.

No less than four boating and fishing lakes are within 45 to 50 minutes. Check out Zapata Falls, the many horse trails, and the fishing and boating lakes such as Smith Reservoir - stocked with trout, walleye and bass - within 45 minutes to an hour away. Other recreation options include the Great San Dunes National Monument with camping, hiking, ATV trails, and majestic views.

Ski and art enthusiasts can enjoy Taos, New Mexico, an easy 45 to 50 minutes south. Taos - popular for both its skiing and for its well- known art colony, attracting literally thousands of tourists each year - can become your own backyard playground. Other ski areas within 1 1/2 hour's drive offer beginner, intermediate, and pro slopes with snowboarding areas.

Residents and sportsmen can enjoy the rural serenity of the valley while having easy access to Alamosa, 45 to 50 minutes to the northwest, where all the advantages of a four-year college, airport, and many shops and restaurants, including a new Wal Mart, are available. The town of San Luis, the oldest settlement in Colorado, is approximately 25 miles away.

Home builders love that Rio Grande Ranchos remains unpolluted with a moderate cost of living. It sits on top of the largest, cleanest water table in the North American Continent. Its fertile soil produces a variety of crops, including an abundance of alfalfa. The sun shines an average of 300 days per year and snowfall is limited.

Pictures are not of the parcel, they are of the general area where the property is located, the Rio Grande Ranchos. While I have included pictures of the Rio Grande River, the property is actually not next to the river, the river is a long walk or a very short drive away -- less than one mile.
