Much of the Sangre de Cristo and Wet Mountain ranges are part of San Isabel National Forest, which provides access to hundreds of miles of hiking and ATV trails, camping opportunities, horseback riding and packing, and mountain climbing. You'll also find trout in nearby mountain lakes, rivers and streams. Just a short drive away, the Arkansas River features some of the country's best white water rafting.

The climate is ideal - cool, clear and mostly dry in the winter, warm in the summer, and sunny nearly all year-round. Fall is most beautiful of all with the spun-gold aspens and the first snow crowning the big range.
