In the 1870s, miners, ranchers, and homesteaders convened in the Wet Mountain Valley at an elevation of 8,000 feet in the beautiful Rocky Mountain West. Still considered to be "off the beaten path," Colorado land for sale in the Wet Mountain Valley includes mountain luxury homes, Colorado ranches, Colorado hunting and fishing land, Silver Cliff and Westcliffe Colorado real estate for families and retirement, mountain cabins, vacation properties, and second homes.

It is safe to assume that all of this south-central Colorado real estate features spectacular views of the Sangre de Cristo and Wet Mountains. Herds of deer, elk, and antelope graze in the open grasslands and it is not uncommon to spot a cougar, fox, bobcat, or bear.

The Sangre de Cristo Wilderness beckons to be explored. Trails wind through stands of spruce and fir. Alpine meadows glisten against the clear blue skies, offering respite to the hardy ones who dare to climb one of the Fourteeners, the tallest mountains in Colorado. Across the valley, the warmer Wet Mountains, laden with yucca, cactus, pinon, and ponderosa, provide diversity to the landscape.

Abounding recreational opportunities draw river rafters, hikers, bikers, ATVing, cross-country skiers, and snowshoers out of doors.

Wet Mountain Valley is a wonderful place for camping, staying in an old miner's cabin, or luxuriating at a mountain spa or villa. Guests visit ranches, the wolf preserve, and take the horseback history tour. There are remnants of abandoned mines, trails for hikers, bikers, and skiers, and plenty of fun adventures that charm newcomers to our mountain hamlets.

The Valley is a lesson and experience of mountain culture. Venues such as the Historic Jones Theater, fine art galleries, artist studios, museums, unique restaurants, cafes, and pubs, and fun shops are points of interest. Valley museums to be explored include Silver Cliff Museum, Old West Cliff Schoolhouse and Museum, the Historic Hope Lutheran Church, and All Aboard Westcliffe.

Invigorating holiday events and special events - such as Art in the Sangres, Stampede Rodeo, High Mountain Hayfever Bluegrass Festival, and Wet Mountain Western Days - churn up the camaraderie. There are parades, fairs, rodeos, and gatherings for hobbyists.
