  • Brief Directions: Cuchara Valley is nestled in between the Wahatoya peaks (Indian name Breast of the earth, also called Spanish Peaks) and the Sangre De Cristo ( blood of Christ) mountain range. With names like that a photographers creativity already begins to flow. The valley starts where Highway 12 (Highway of Legends) splits off of Colorado highway 160.

Beginning at La Veta, “the vain” named for its historic mining beginning, one can go from 6,000 ft to over 9,994 ft at the top of La Veta pass.
