The Sangre de Cristo Mountains are one of the longest mountain chains on Earth. They stretch from Poncha Pass, Colorado, in the north to Glorieta Pass, New Mexico, in the south. There are ten peaks over 14,000′ high in the range, more than two dozen over 13,000′.
Miles and miles of excellent alpine hiking trails through millions of acres of the San Isabel, Rio Grande, Carson, and Santa FeNational Forests. The Sangre de Cristo, Wheeler Peak, Latir Peaks, Pecos, and Spanish Peaks National Wilderness Areas are found here.
Some of the best rock climbing, snow skiing and whitewater rafting on Earth are also right here. The Trinchera elk herd is one of the largest in the world (and we are part of its’ stomping grounds). Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep are found all through the range. If it’s fly fishing you want, we have excellent waters to offer. There’s also the Great Sand Dunes, the Spanish Peaks and several major ski areas nearby.
