As the Scenic Passenger Train is heard in the distance you'll look up towards Mount Blanca and imagine your next adventure living among the wildflowers of this High Desert Mountain Hipcamp. Recovering from a wildfire the ancient sage brushes that had previously made the land harsh and unwelcoming are gone, replaced with an abundance of grasses and wildflowers. Open Land as far as you can go to the East you'll follow the Coyote canyon to high mountain lookouts. There are old logging maintenance roads you also take advantage of. Hike, Bike or Motor around the local area. Fort Garland and Blanca have a community center, septic dump and water fill and can provide groceries. The Great Sand dunes are about 45 minutes away. The Sand Dunes swimming pool fed by a very hot artisan well is about an hour away (highly recommended). Mountain Home Lake is also within 1/2 an hour or so for fishing/water sports with a nice boat ramp. Escape from light pollution like never before, a clear night sky will make the whole trip worthwhile! Lots of wild life and you will see some deer, hear the coyotes, and count the different colors of the humming bird. You can book a train ride out of Alamosa, and visit the local historic towns. The views will make it hard to leave the campsite, but there are tons of experiences and things to do in the area so make sure to do some research before you arrive.

Honestly we had to leave same-day as the winds picked up like crazy (RIP, our tent). However what we can say is the views are wonderful, the host was accommodating and kind, the directions were spot-on, and we were devastated when we had to leave. We definitely need to come back, albeit in calmer weather, to view the stars. Site is exposed with not a ton of tree shelter, so be prepared for the elements if they should arrive.
