Sangre de Cristo Ranches (SDCR)

If you’re looking for the great outdoors, clean air, and wide-open spaces, the Sangre de Cristo Ranches are about as good as it gets. In the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, you will be surrounded by priceless views of the Rocky Mountains, with Mt. Blanca (14.3K feet) and Trinchera Peak (13.6K feet) hovering above you.

Your days will be as full as you want them to be. Spend hours hiking, hunting, fishing, and watching nature during the day. While relaxing after a hearty dinner, enjoy the sunset that is often a beautiful red color on the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, which inspired their name, which means Blood of Christ. After the sun is down, you’ll likely be content just gazing at the incredible night sky as you are re-introduced to just how many stars there are – and how bright they can be without city light pollution.

The lots in Sangre de Cristo range in elevation from 7,900 to 12,000 feet, with a variety of terrains from rolling to hilly to mountainous. Vegetation at the lower elevations consists mostly of sagebrush and Piñon, with taller varieties of pine being prevalent above 9,000 feet. The community contains some full-time residents combined with a lot of empty land whose owners use it for occasional camping and recreation. There is no problem with overcrowding around here! The roads are maintained by Costilla County and are accessible by cars and trucks in all but the most extreme weather conditions.

Wildlife is abundant in this area, whether for viewing or for hunting. There is a Greenbelt with over 5,000 acres set aside to the public for hunting and other forms of recreation. Elk are common, with roughly 7,000 head in the local herd, and highly sought after by avid hunters. You’ll also see plenty of deer, antelope, and other animals roaming the region. This is outdoor recreation at its finest. There is even a new ski area opening up an hour away, Cuchara Valley Resort.

The region begins just 6 miles southeast of the historic town of Fort Garland, “the gateway to the San Luis Valley.” At the intersection of US Highway 160 and Colorado Highway 159, Fort Garland is home to services like a post office, gas stations, a grocery store, and several restaurants. A half hour west from there is the larger hub of Alamosa, which offers a university, hospital, restaurants, grocery stores, Home Depot, Walmart Supercenter, and an airport. As natural and rustic as the Ranches may be, you won’t be too far away from modern necessities and conveniences.
