Sangre De Cristo Mountains
Here's a picture collection of the Sangre De Cristo Mountains from various vantage points in the San Luis Valley. We were on our way to the Great Sand Dunes National Park, and let's just say the stunning Colorado mountain scenery speaks for itself. (Adjacent photo: The Northern Sangre De Cristo Range to the east of the town of Villa Grove)

East of the small town of Hooper, the towering Sangre De Cristo range stands tall. In the bottom photo, I did not crop the picture at all to hopefully give you some perspective on just how commonly isolated and desert-like the floor of the San Luis Valley is in this spot.

I stood in the same spot for both of these photos, with me zooming-in on the bottom photo.
