Wet Mountain Valley

 Wet Mountain Valley   

The Wet Mountain Valley is nestled beneath the biologically diverse Wet Mountains on the east, and the rugged Sangre de Cristo Range that parallels the valley on the west, making for dramatic views in every direction. Both mountain ranges are in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains System of the Southern Rocky Mountains. The valley is a bit of a journey back in time. Remnants of old homesteads, barns and one-room school houses are set amid some of the Colorado’s lushest country, still dominated by farms and ranches. Horses and cattle roam. Foxes and pronghorn antelope make their homes in fields and pastures irrigated by spring runoff.
