Published by under General Information

Fall weather has arrived here in the Cuchara Valley. This past week saw our first glimpse of snowfall on the high peaks with over one inch of welcome rain at lower elevations. Scrub-oak is turning red and orange now. Quaking aspen and streamside cottonwoods both beginning to show golden yellows. Fall also brings us the Intn’l. Celtic Festival, farmers markets, fairs and Oktoberfest. Plan a trip to come see us soon.

Cuchara Valley Rains and Color

Published by under General Information

This week has seen temps. dipping into the 40s and more hours of gentle rainfall than we have had in many months. About 1 inch rain around La Veta and twice that up at Cuchara. That night the highest elevation trees were dusted with our first coat of snow. Foliage colors are really beginning to change this week. A beautiful forest tapestry within next 10 days.
