Twin Lakes Canoe & Kayak Adventures
Nothing can compare to nature. Seeing the world’s great forests and lakes can help a person remember what’s truly important in life. It is for this reason that we rent canoes & kayaks to those interested in such adventures.
Our canoe rentals and kayak rentals let you travel along the peaceful waters around Twin Lakes, CO. Doing so gives you access to some of the best fishing in the area.
The park’s two lakes offer a variety of boating and angling opportunities for all types of water recreation. Martin Lake offers water skiing, power and sail boating. Because Martin is a warm-water lake, it makes it great for swimmers. Horseshoe Lake is a peaceful haven for canoeists, kayakers, sailors and other boaters at wakeless speeds. Catfish, bass, walleye, trout and blue gill thrive in both lakes. Horseshoe Lake is known for its large tiger muskies.

In 1915, M.B. Skaggs, an ambitious young man in the small Idaho town of American Falls, purchased a tiny grocery store from his father. M.B.’s business strategy, to give his customers value and to expand by keeping a narrow profit margin, proved spectacularly successful. By 1926 he had opened 428 Skaggs stores in 10 states. M.B. almost doubled the size of his business that year when he merged his company with 322 Safeway (formerly Selig) stores and incorporated as Safeway, Inc. Two years later, M.B. listed Safeway on the New York Stock Exchange. M.B. did not let the difficulties of the Great Depression dilute his pioneering focus on value for customers. In the 1930s, Safeway introduced produce pricing by the pound, added “sell by” dates on perishables to assure freshness, nutritional labeling and even created some of the first parking lots.

The Museum Of Friends (MoF) is a contemporary art museum that opened in October, 2006 in the Southern Colorado rural community of Walsenburg. Brendt Berger’s and Maria Cocchiarelli’s shared vision for the new museum was to create a place where everyone feels welcomed and the art created by all people valued. The initial collection of 600 works given by their friends became the core of the collection. Over the last 15 years it has grown to over 1600 works that includes paintings, sculptures, fine art prints, drawings, photographs and digital media. MoF occupies 10,000 square feet of museum display space, with classroom areas, a gift shop and a lower level. MoF is known for it’s inclusive and egalitarian open door policy with intention to uplift the community through discussions of creativity, inclusion and developing opportunities. Many public and educational programs and exhibitions explore how cross cultural understanding and tolerance can make for a just and peaceful society.
MoF’s grand opening in October, 2007 encouraged the community to explore the building with tours on the 2nd floor that included: the permanent collection, the administrative offices, an art resource library, a visiting artist apartment and two galleries devoted to the Pacific. These explore pre-Columbian Mexican, Australian, Japanese, Southeast Asian and focus on Aboriginal Polynesian artifacts. The works on display are greatly treasured by Brendt Berger as they have been passed down to him from his Native Hawaiian ancestors.
In 2010, MoF began to occupy the entire building including the first and lower level establishing the changing exhibition and educational programs, and gift shop Made in Walsenburg.

We were searching the country for the perfect hotel to purchase, and as we narrowed our search to Colorado, we stumbled upon the La Veta Inn. This quaint mountain town nestled at the base of the Spanish Peaks caught our attention and drew us in, as it’s done to so many others who had never been here before. The property had sadly been closed and was desperately in need of someone to come to the rescue.
We fell in love with the beautiful patio and details of the property and knew this was the place for us. It wasn’t long after Ali and I too found La Veta to be our home. Ever since we’ve been working hard to make the hotel a place to remember.
We would like to welcome you to come visit us and fall in love with the town, the area, and our Inn just as we have.

Color and light are always significant in my paintings. I am fortunate to live in one of the most beautiful, best kept secrets in Colorado. No matter whether my painting is of the magnificent Spanish Peaks, or of a lowly rock in the snow, my hope is to connect with others who share my love of the natural world.
As we experience the world around us, we often hold onto fleeting moments we remember more as feelings than how things really looked. In my work, I strive to capture these moments, enhancing the feelings with expressive colors, yet retaining the reality of the scene.

The building now known as the Francisco Center for the Performing Arts was originally a Presbyterian Church built in 1892 on land donated by Colonel John Francisco and Mrs. P.Q. McComb. The Church, a stately white wooden building on Francisco Street, was built by William H. Adamson at a cost of $1,200. Initially it contained two rooms, a 38′ x 40′ audience room and a second 16′ by 22′ room. In 1893, the Church boasted a membership of 35 souls.
In the early 1970’s the Presbyterians signed the structure over to the town of La Veta for use by the Francisco Fort Museum. Today it is managed by the Francisco Center for the Performing Arts. Over the years, several talented troupes of actors and entertainers have called this stage home, beginning in 1975 with the formation of the Spoon River Players, which later became the Fort Francisco Players and, currently, the Spanish Peaks Players. The Spoon River Players, a community theater group, was started by La Veta High School’s drama teacher Robert W. Johnson and debuted with the production of Edgar Lee Master’s The Spoon River Anthology.
On July 31 and August 1, 1976, the Spoon River Players performed its first play, The Silver Whistle, in what would become the Francisco Center for the Performing Arts. Between 1976 and 1981 the Players used the old church for plays with little modification to the facility. In fact, during the first five years or so, the theater was heated with a couple of wood stoves to allow for winter productions. A 1981 lease agreement between the Fort Francisco Museum and the Players formed the Fort Francisco Center for the Performing Arts.
The Spoon River Players continued to produce from three to six plays a years until the mid-1990s, including melodramas, musicals, comedies, mysteries and tragedies. Productions included, to name but a few, Oklahoma, Wait Until Dark, Mousetrap, A Star-Spangled Girl, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Our Town, A Streetcar Named Desire, Blithe Spirit, The Rainmaker, Steel Magnolias, Man of LaMancha, The Night of January 16th, and The Importance of Begin Earnest. La Veta High School’s drama program also staged some productions at the Francisco Center over the years including A Thurber Carnival in 1981 and The High School Zone in 1998. Today, the LVHS Senior Class play at the theater is an annual springtime event.
In 1985 the Players once again produced Edgar Lee Master’s The Spoon River Anthology to honor the 10th anniversary of the theater. Over 25 cast members were on stage, and it was noted then that well over 200 residents of the area had been involved in productions at the theater during its first decade. By now that number has most likely doubled, if not tripled.
In the mid-1990s a new acting troupe, the Fort Francisco Players, was formed to pick up where the Spoon River Players left off. To be continued . .

The T/M Ranch is a private ranch located in southeastern Colorado near the foothills of the
Sangra De Cristo Mountains. We have several rivers which run through the ranch, i.e. Santa
Claire, Cuchara, and the Huerfano. The elevation is 6800 feet. The terrain is a combination of
rolling cedar ridges, canyons, and river bottoms which provides physically easier hunts than
mountainous areas. All of our hunts are fair chase. We only run small groups of hunters, first
and foremost to provide safety and quality. We have experienced guides that scout and track
our animals year round. Our ranch has also received Colorado Land Management awards, which
speaks for the stewardship and care that we take pride in. We are a working cattle ranch. We
don’t over graze our land and believe in cattle rotation as to preserve our vegetation, thus
leading to quality big game. The vegetation consists of predominately Blue Grama, Western
Wheat, some Rye, Chamise, Monarch Bush, and Clover.

Cynamin was born and raised in Kansas. She grew up with family, summering in the La Veta/Cuchara, Colorado area, where she fell in love with its majestic mountains, wholesome people, family traditions, and enchanting wildlife. She has five generations of family who have built their lives creating memories in Colorado. Cynamin met her husband Jim, a La Veta native and Air Force veteran in Cuchara. After marrying in 1991, the newlyweds moved all over the United States inhabiting: Arizona, California, Colorado, Oklahoma, and Illinois. Finally, in 2010, Cynamin and her family were called back to the only place that ever felt like home, Cuchara. Cynamin is the mother of three boys, who are La Veta High School alumni.
Jim and Cynamin started “The Cuchara Country Music Festival,” which was successful for three years in Cuchara. In 2016, the festival relocated to the La Veta Airport allowing for larger venues, different genres of music, RV camping, and food vendors.
