GPS ALERT: If you coming to La Veta from the West on Hwy 160, GPS has you turn on Co. Rd 450.  As you are approaching town, GPS will want you to turn on 2nd st. It is a dead end and there are signs that say that. Do not turn on 2nd street or 1st street as GPS may instruct you to.  Just stay on 450 and it will bring you into La Veta. You will stay on that road until you come to Main St. From there you will turn left and go approximately 3 blocks to 2nd street where you will turn left and come into the park.

Fall is in the air. Even though it was in the 80's today, it begins to cool off tomorrow. I was up in the mountains last weekend and there were a few aspens that had tinges of yellow leaves!
We had a busy weekend but the park will be quiet the next few days. We will be busy over the last weekend of the month and Oktoberfest weekend. Personally, I love this time of year. The sound of the leaves rustling with the breezes, the deer families running across the field, the cool mornings and evenings, and looking out for bears.
Still plenty of time to come to La Veta. We are open until October 31.
