East Spanish Peak Fire

Published by under General Information

Frightening fire up on the East Peak last night. Still no containment.  Maybe 7 or 8 miles SE of La Veta and even farther away from Cuchara. Evacuations are in progress in some areas. 
It started up at end of Bear Creek Road near Boy Scout Camp on north side of the East Peak. Has burned much up the mountain on north side toward peak and slowly creeping westerly too. But winds also blowing fire NE toward Walsenburg. Burning a large area now, 9,000 acres. Burning south of CR 363 between 360 Wahatoya and Bear Creek to the west. Have already also lost a few homes considerable distance SE of the peak too, in areas of Silver Spurs and Blackhawk Ranch developments.

Memorial Weekend

Published by under General Information

Memorial Weekend has seen more traffic here in Cuchara Valley than we expected. Aspen and oak aren’t even in leaf yet, but beautiful weather, bears are out, visitors and clients coming in earlier than usual it seems. Meanwhile, I am getting plenty of good work. Fantastic new properties to look at. And I am reminded that my new posts have been lagging.  Will post more photos later.
Have a great weekend memorial of friends, family, EMS, and for those serving our great country in all uniforms.  Come see us.

Warming breezes in Cuchara – ice in Denver.

Published by under General Information

Our good friend just posted that they are right now de-icing her plane in Denver. Here in Cuchara Valley we are 65 degrees with warming breezes. But we would sure take that moisture if it comes down our way.

Cuchara Valley SNOW

Published by under General Information

Grateful for another nice cuchara valley snow today and tonight.  About another 5 inches. It may not be a real big one but they all add up. Cleans and freshens the entire valley too.  Fun to see the new fresh game tracks tomorrow.
