The Two Peaks /One Book series continues at the La Veta Public Library on Thursday, March 5, with an informal, moderated  book discussion of our featured novel," A Gentleman in Moscow", by Amor Towles. Our theme this year is civility and Towles  lovely book fits perfectly.  This beautifully written story of a 30 year old count who, in 1922,was sentenced to house arrest in a hotel across from the Kremlin for 30 years.  It is rich in culture, history, humor, intrigue and self discovery all within the confines of the famous Metropol Hotel.  Whether or not you have read the book, come and join us for a lively discussion.  Brought to you with free refreshments by the Friends of LaVeta Library.

Spanish Peaks Wilderness

A.k.a Wahatoya Region

In Southern Colorado, there's an immense area where few go. Some enjoy the Nature, away from the crowded trails and resorts. Some come for the adventure. Some even stay.

What to do?

Follow trails through tall evergreens and quaking aspens. Stand on rock outcroppings and survey the valleys and vistas as they tumble upon each other to the horizon. Sit under a tree and listen...to the songs of the birds, the wind, the trees...the song of the mountains. Relax you're in the Cuchara Valley.
