Hi Everybody. Just updating the home page. I'm thinking spring is going to be here sometime in the future for many of us. Denny and I are getting excited for our 2nd year owning Circle the Wagons. I have been busy today embroidering sweatshirts with our new logo on them.
I am in Arkansas hanging out with my Mom and I have a friend who has a 6 color embroidery machine so the shirts are looking great. Denny is in Llano. We hope to meet up again in late March and begin our trek back to Colorado. We have lots to do to get ready for our May 1 opening. My feet are much better that last year and I hope I can be more helpful to Denny with some of the projects.
We have increased our rates a little for the daily and weekly reservations. Basically we just rounded off the amounts. Please go to the Rates page to see our new rates. Also, the train is no longer picking up passengers in La Veta. I have called the company several times and have left messages to no avail. If you are staying at the campground with the notion that you are doing one of the concerts or events that leave from La Veta, please know that you will have to drive to Alamosa now to get on the train. Please contact the railroa
d for more information. Their number is
877-726-7245. We are so sorry for this turn of events.
Just a gentle reminder that July is filling up and if you would like to spend some with us during that month, you may want to make your reservations sooner rather than later.
Tickets go on sale around March 1, 2014 for the Cuchara Country Music Fest on June 14, 2014. Tickets are $40. Here is the website for tickets www.cucharacountrymusicfest.com They sold out last year and have increased the number of tickets from 800 to 1200 this year.
That's it for now. Please call us at 719-989-0614 for reservations or questions. We will have the phone back on April 1, 2014 as long as we don't have a problem getting to La Veta due to weather complications. Please check out the Upcoming Events below.
