Cuchara and La Veta Weather

Published by under General Information


Saturday was a great day here in the Cuchara Valley.  Early morning was cool and clear with no winds. I drove up to Cuchara Pass Ranch to List a wonderful Country Home (more on that later).  And as I was about to head back down to La Veta, I saw 3 nice elk.  What made it so special was this time of the year.  I have seen lots of buck deer in their springtime velvet antlers, but never a bull elk  in velvet.  They were mossy looking and beautiful.

A Busy Week

Published by under General Information

Have been busy and missed some of my blog posts this week. 

We had our official CLOSING today on the Book Nook building purchase.  They made their goal, got their Gates Matching funds and now own their own little building on Main.  Our hearty congratulations to them.

And we have a Purchase Contract this week on a nice small ranch. I told you about that big price reduction 2 weeks ago.  I knew this would go fast now.  Still the usual hurdles of contingencies so never a done deal until you leave the closing table with your check.  But it looks very promising.

One response so far

T.G.I.F. in La Veta & Cuchara

Published by under General Information

Two big Friday night events here in the Valley.

Formal opening of Timbers Restaurant at Cuchara tonight.  We were honored to attend a small pre-opening shakedown trial last night and enjoyed one of the nicest dinners we have had in some time.  Wonderful food and service.  Give it a try real soon. Last Open Mic night of the season is also tonight at the Parkside in La Veta.  The entertainment has been fabulous of late.  You won’t want to miss out on this one.

So to cover both venues, I recommend that we all draw a number and you even numbers go up to the Timbers and the odd ones go to Open Mic.
