Around Spanish Peaks Country I am known as ‘Joe the Travel Writer’ and I will be your guide this year as we explore the visitor friendly events, unique terrain and fascinating people of this majestic and magical place. I know from personal experience of the matchless effect the awesome beauty of the Spanish Peaks can have on a person.
This is why it is my goal to help you enjoy a meaningful experience in Spanish Peaks Country. I invite you to call or email directly to hear my story and start your retreat to Huerfano Country. Click here for more…
Music in the Mountains
On June 13th the Village of Cuchara will host our largest June event, the Cuchara Country Music Festival. When you join us in Cuchara, you’ll feel like you just walked into the set of the old Bonanza TV series, as you stroll along the covered boardwalks and rough-hewn pine buildings of this iconic western town. Visit the Festival’s website to get the full line up for this full day of music, dancing and fun. Then make your lodging reservations quickly, as accommodations in Cuchara are limited. Then again, setting up base camp in La Veta or Walsenburg would be a great alternative. There are many great lodging values available year round in Huerfano County.
