This is one of the San Luis Valley’s population centers, and you’ll find most anything you need here in terms of lodging and provisions. Bird feeders often produce Evening and Black-headed Grosbeaks, Cassin’s Finch, American and Lesser Goldfinches, Pine Siskin, and (in summer) hummingbirds of up to four species. Base yourself here for an expedition into the southern San Juans or the La Garitas.
