San Luis Valley in Colorado is a lesser known part of Colorado, but offers all the beauty that the rest of the state has. The San Luis Valley was a favorite place of mine when I lived there and when I returned for a visit I made sure to the valley on my agenda. I was able to visit during the Winter in between snow storms and could have been luckier with the weather. The mountains were all snow capped and tourist destinations such as, The Great Sand Dunes National Park were empty. The first photos in this series was from Mt. Evans near Denver during the same visit.
