Wilderness complex that provides a habitat for waterfowl, shorebirds, songbirds and raptors.
We stopped at the first parking lot and have a lovely 2 mile hike around the wetlands with the two whippets. So peaceful and scenic. Totally flat so a very easy walk.

The Rio Grande Scenic Railroad is Colorado's newest train offering steam engine rides through breathtaking mountain valleys and over legendary LaVeta pass on hundreds of miles of historic rail. Excursions offer riders a trip back in time on restored passenger cars that stop at the quaint mountain town of LaVeta and hear narration of Colorado history, mining stories and catch a glimpse of wildlife--including bears! Summer weekends brings the Mountain Rails Live summer concert series with nationally renowned acts to a boxcar stage at 9,400 ft only accessible by our train. This green location is run on solar and wind power. Seasonal rides are available throughout the year.
We had such a wonderful time on our train trip!! Ended up at the railroad's beautiful Fir, Colorado stop, where we enjoyed a terrific concert by Michael Martin Murphey and friends - excellent!! Then, in Diamond Class, the boys from the band "jammed" all the way back to Alamosa on our return trip. Such fun. Love the train, love that Mr. Ellis has worked so hard to keep this excursion line in top order. We were on the Mardi Gras car and even got MMM and Mr. Ellis to autograph my husband's recent Trains magazine which had a full article on the Mardi Gras - made famous by Steve Goodman who composed "City of New Orleans" while riding this car back in the day! Absolutely wonderful day!

Alamosa National Wildlife Refuge is located east of Alamosa while the Montevista Wildlife Refuge is west. The wildlife refuges have expanded to better protect the water resources in the valley. The Alamosa Refuge offers good habitat, which attracts wildlife that is easy to spot including deer, elk, pronghorn, coyotes, waterfowl and all sorts of small game. The only complaint I have is one of the young rangers is a little aggressive and inappropriate with people.

Service was verrrrry slow, but many riders from a bicycle tour were eating here during our visit; perhaps Monday afternoons are usually a lot quieter -- ? Some of the staff were really hustling! Nice menu with a lot of options. Smoked bacon burger with mushrooms was cooked to order and delicious. Large side selection; I chose the redskins and found them a nice alternative to fries.

Firedworks is a local downtown art gallery. Fine art, weavings, pottery, jewelry. Quality is very good and rivals big city gallery's. Owners are local and genuinely wonderful to deal with. Have purchased here and had an orniginal piece of art framed - I'm delighted with it all.

We visited on a Saturday morning. There was one very friendly woman docent there, and no one came in while we were there. It has only two rooms, and they ask for $2 donation. Small, but some interesting history of migration to the valley, with Germans, Japanese, Dutch, Columbian and others. It is a bit of a home town affair, but if you have an hour in Alamosa, it is kind of fun.

You might want to walk across The Rio Grande River on the bridge to Cole Park directly across the river.Many more trails and trees.Til the end of summer every Sunday at 6:30p a concert is presented of local artists.Also can be accessed via State st. You can park and walk to the Farm Park .

We came in to rent some sand sleds to take to the Sand Dunes. The staff were very friendly and helpful. They gave us great beta on the use of the sleds, how to wax them, and how to get the most out of our time on the Dunes. Thanks crew!
