I lived at the base of that butte for a few years. Loved every minute of it.

I’m sure going to miss our summer gathering this year. Campgrounds discouraged visitors so we will move our group farther west. ๐Ÿ˜ข First time in 10 years we won’t be eating and shopping in LaVeta and Cuchara.

That was always Rattlesnake Butte to me!

Love the view from exit 64

When was this picture of the Butte taken

Where is the fire?

Home sweet home๐Ÿ’•

I long to be there!!!!

9 days!!

I was fortunate enough to spend many summers in La Veta, CO. I was fortunate enough to spend many days in Cuchara. Playing volleyball/horseshoes at the Dog Bar. Hiking around the old Cuchara Ski area. Took the drive on Hwy 12 to Trinidad many times. You owe ti to yourself to make the drive.

Thanks for sharing this!

Been up West Peak 6 times, never been up East Peak. Probably never will; too far out of shape for the distance and elevation.

Petroglyphs are abundant in Southeastern Colorado. In fact, this part of Colorado is second only to the Four Corners area in Native American ruins.

From the Wahatoya Trail, at the base of the West Spanish Peak, in the foreground we see the remains of an ancient volcanic plug called Goemmerโ€™s Butte. In the upper right we see Mount Mestas also know as Old Baldy. This Peak is primarily on BLM land and was once know as Veta Mountain. #historywithbob #themoreyouknow #spanishpeakscountry

Winds out of the west caused waves to splash onto dried vegetation on one of two lakes that hold the Town of La Vetaโ€™s water supply. In the background we see the West Spanish Peak, standing at 13,626 feet. ๐Ÿ” #historywithbob
