Colorado Local People

I wanted to dedicate a section of to Colorado local people, especially those living in the San Luis Valley.

These people call the San Luis Valley home and enjoy living here.

There is a lot to be learned by visiting with people that know the area and can tell you the best places to fish or hunt or where to go to see the beautiful views.

With many families living in the San Luis Valley for multiple generations there is a world of knowledge to be shared.

I also thought it would be a unique way for you to get to know how friendly and welcoming the people of the San Luis Valley are.

When visiting a rural area it can often feel like time slows down. People do not seem to be in quite as big of hurry as in the city.

You will also often receive waves from people you don’t know as you drive through the country.

This is just part of life as everyone seems to know everyone in the San Luis Valley.

With such a diverse population of people living in the San Luis Valley, no two stories will be alike.

I hope you enjoy reading about the people of the San Luis Valley and why they love where they live!!
