Colorado’s Exceptional SAN LUIS VALLEY Collection

back to gallery

This is the extraordinary San Luis Valley in Southern Colorado.

Photographs in this collection include America's newest National Park, the GREAT SAND DUNES NATIONAL PARK, a large, free-roaming BISON HERD that lives on 50,000 acres of unfenced Valley prairie on the Zapata/Medano Conservation Ranches, the majestic SANGRE de CRISTO MOUNTAIN Range, the small town of SAGAUCHE and other areas in the Valley.

Additional special Valley attractions include the SHRIVER/WRIGHT STATE WILDLIFE AREA where over 20,000 Greater SANDHILL CRANES and WHOOPING CRANES stop for weeks to fatten up for their migrations north each spring and south each fall, VALLEY VIEW NATURAL HOT SPRINGS, an ALLIGATOR RANCH, a UFO (yes, unidentified flying object) viewing platform, the artistic and spiritual town of CRESTONE, the HISTORIC Hispanic town of SAN LUIS that was founded in 1851 and the RIO GRANDE RIVER.

The immense SAN JUAN MOUNTAIN RANGE boarders the Valley on the west and the ancient TAOS PUEBLO lies some 90 miles south of Alamosa Colorado, around 50 miles into New Mexico.
