Horse Mesa, Colorado
Wild Horse Mesa overlooks Lake Sanchez and the Sangre de
Cristo Mountains in Southern Colorado. Skiing is 20 minutes
away at Costilla Ski resort and 48 miles from Red River New
Mexico and 65 miles from Taos Ski Basin. The
area is nestled in the fabulous San Luis Valley in southern
Colorado, the world's highest true valley. Located on Hwy.
#159 just five miles north of the Colorado-New Mexico state
line. The San Luis Valley is ringed by the three National
Forests of the San Juans and Sangre de Cristo Mountains.
Hwy. #159 changes numbers at the state line, so Taos is down
New Mexico Hwy. #3. Red River is just off Hwy. #3. San Luis,
the oldest town in Colorado, adjoins the north end of the
area. Lake Sanchez, is great for sailing and water
sports. You will find Northern Pike and Rainbow Trout in
Lake Sanchez and surrounding area. The area abounds with
wild sage and pinon pine home to wild horses, deer, elk and
squirrel. Overhead are eagles, ravens and bluebirds.
This is a nice area to build that dream home or to buy
property for investment purposes.
