Spanish Peaks, Colorado

The Beautiful Spanish Peaks
October 17, 2015 - On a sunny October afternoon, I paid a visit to La Veta and Cuchara in Huerfano County. I snapped many photos, including one nifty fall foliage shot, but it seemed most of my attention was drawn towards the Spanish Peaks. Below are my best images of the peaks. This page needed to be created, because I've been wanting to climb West Spanish Peak - the higher of the two. Ahhh, someday. :)

Spanish Peaks, Colorado


West Spanish Peaks stands tall and proud as one travels south on Highway 12 between La Veta and Cuchara.

P.S. Yes, that is snow on the highest part of the mountain. :)

La Veta, Colorado La Veta is a quaint and endearing town.

The Spanish Peaks made it in the not too shabby series. :)
