It’s not everyday you get to see an “old timey” store like this one in Cuchara Colorado. But it’s real! In fact the whole town is real, not a movie set. And did you notice the sign for game meat? Buffalo and Elk are on the menu.
Off of I25, just East of Walsenburg and East of La Veta on HWY #12. Follow the highway into Trinidad. On your trip you will also come across North Lake, some times called Blue Lake and Monument Lake.
Not for the faint of heart at an altitude of 8400 feet above sea level. A great day trip from Colorado Springs or Albuquerque. And the snow capped mountains behind the store are the Sangre de Cristo.
