The town of Walsenburg is
just east of La Veta Pass, gateway to the San Luis Valley.
Walsenburg has a
small-town atmosphere, a few good restaurants and several places
where a die-hard fisherman can land a hook. Try Lathrop State Park
just west of town, offers hiking, biking, horseback riding,
fishing, and camping in view of the grand Spanish Peaks. In hot
summer months, take a refreshing swim at the lake or go boating,
fishing, water skiing, sailing or jet skiing.
Area attractions include
the San Isabel National Forest, Spanish Peaks, the Sangre de
Cristo Mountains, Greenhorn Mountain and Wet Mountains.
