The San Luis Valley
The San Luis Valley, North America’s largest alpine valley, sits at the south-central border of Colorado and New Mexico, beginning just above of Taos, NM and extending north to Poncha Pass, near Villa Grove, CO. Highways 160 (east-west) and 285 (north-south) are the region’s primary transportation veins.
Zapata is located at the eastern edge of the valley, at the junction of Highway 150 and Lane 6 North — about 15 miles east of the town of Mosca and five miles south of Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve.
The San Luis Valley sits at about 7,500 feet above sea level, in a semi-arid region ringed on all sides by mountains. The climate is dry and temperate for three seasons, with sunny, warm, pleasant summers and cool, breezy springs and falls. Winters can be harsh, with daytime temperatures averaging in the 20s and often dipping well below zero at night. Snowfall is common from October through April and accumulates in the foothills and mountains (including Zapata), usually melting off quickly in the lower elevations.
Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve
Just north of Zapata is one of North America’s largest dune fields, and one of the most biologically diverse park in the United States. Miles of drifting, changing, ethereal dunes stretch out in every direction, and soar as high as 700 feet above visitors. In the lush landscape surrounding the dunes, mule deer, elk, black bears, mountain lions, coyotes, eagles, hawks and other wildlife share the park with more than 300,000 visitors each year. Many of these animals share a community back yard with Zapata residents.
