200 acres of valley land across a simple gravel road from the Rio Grande Del Norte National Monument. The monument is over 300,000 acres of land protected by the Bureau of Land Management and encompasses some of the most remarkable lands in the country. The gorge boarders one side, there the Rio Grande River follows the earthquake rift 800 feet below. Walk across the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge in Taos, NM, just an hour south of your property, and see the river from above. The gem of the Monument is the Ute Mountain, jutting 3,000 feet above the plains at 10,093 ft. As you can see from the pictures, this land sits at the base of the Ute Mountain with its wildlife and vegetation in full and unobstructed view. With BLM land, you can be assured no one will build between you and the mountain and there will be uncorrupt nature to enjoy. The Ute sits to the south but all of the Sangre De Cristo ranges are to the east with the impressive 14er Mt. Blanca, Little Bear, and Lindsey with their iconic snow capped peaks. This piece of Colorado is surrounded by ranges, some far, some near with a wide open valley for the elk, deer, antelope, wild horses, and coyotes to roam.
