Spring or Fall?

Published by under General Information

Very fall-like weather these past few days.  Lows in the 30’s or 40’s.  High temps. on the 50’s or 60’s.  The moisture has been nice but we are looking forward to the dryer warmer trend starting this Wednesday.  I showed property over the weekend and most times could not even see our beautiful Spanish Peaks, for the clouds and drizzle rain. 

I have been helping a new neighbor irrigate his hay and while driving 4-wheeler thru hay meadow along the river,  Mark and I nearly ran over a baby elk calf hidden in the tall grass.   Couldn’t have been over 2 days old.  Mama elk was watching closely and moved him out after darkness fell. Great stuff.

Park Music

Published by under General Information

Liz just attended her Chamber of Commerce meeting Monday night and informs me that David & Annie Enke are getting some of their Summer Concerts scheduled. Mark your calendar for Wednesday, June 30th at 6:30-9:00 p.m. in the La Veta Park on Ryus. “The Rifters” will be performing. Their music is cowboy-style verging to blue grass. The lead guy (Rod Taylor out of Cimarron, NM) is an icon in the likes of Michael Martin Murphy and Waddie Mitchell. He’s a songwriter and will have several of their CD’s for sale. Also in the group is Don Richmond from Alamosa – a virtuostic player of the fiddle, mandolin, lap guitar, electric guitar and acoustic guitar. The bass player is out of Taos. Thee-part harmonies blossom beautifully in the group. Following this concert “As You Go” will perform for Art in the Park over 4th of July weekend.

Delightful Weather

Published by under General Information

The weather was delightful this past weekend for all the local events.  Lots of old friends and acquaintences dropped by to say hello as they return to their cabins.  Cuchara was a buzzin’.   We usually get rain showers for the Saturday Saloon Nite in La Veta, but this year the rain held off until Sunday.  A nice 1/2 inch shower  came thru quickly and left us a beautiful sunset and cooler nights again.

Summer Has Arrived

Published by under General Information

Mid. 80’s today tells us that summer is now officially here.  We even saw our first bear cross the back patio last evening.  Probably only a one year old but plenty to get the dogs excited.  

Here are a few photos from our Grandote Benefit Golf Tournament that raised $5,500 for La Veta beautification.

Internet Service Approved

Published by under General Information

At Tuesday evening’s Town Board Meeting, preliminary approval was granted to DD Wireless for their small 10 ft. tower near the airport.  This provides a great alternative for broad-band service to those living in and around La Veta. 

Liz gave her final financial report on the success of the Main Street Beautification Project.  And presented a $500 donation to the La Veta Tree Board for all their dedication and on-going hard work in new tree plantings and prunings for town beautification.
