9780738576244: Around the Spanish Peaks (Images of America)

Rising up to 13,623 feet above the plains, the twin Spanish Peaks in southern Colorado have been a beacon to travelers for centuries. Native Americans from the Comanche and Ute tribes pitched their teepees in the lush river valleys around the mountains. Spanish explorers from Mexico followed legends of gold here. Migrants on the Santa Fe Trail sighted the peaks at the end of their long trek across the Great Plains. Coal mining and railroads brought a new wave of settlers to the region in the 1870s. Today, visitors head to Walsenburg, La Veta, and Cuchara to enjoy the incredible mountain scenery and year-round recreational activities.

About the Author:

Author Mike Butler has lived in Spanish Peaks country for five years, driving the back roads, hiking the trails, and skiing the passes. Trained in geography and history at the University of Nebraska, he has taught in public high schools and was a division manager for Denver Parks and Recreation. Since retiring to Spanish Peaks country, he has been the adult program coordinator for the La Veta Public Library. In this volume, photographs gathered from local museums, libraries, and private collections bring the exciting history of Spanish Peaks country to life.
