The magnificent Purgatoire River begins in the Culebra Range of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. It flows through the town of Trinidad and the Comanche National Grasslands before joining the Arkansas near the town of Las Animas. The headwaters between Stonewall and Weston, below Trinidad where the Purgatoire becomes a warm water prairie stream is the best fishing for trout. Browns, rainbows and cutthroats populate this hard to reach stream and are best fished in late summer to early fall.

In 1719 the Spanish explorer named the Sangre de Cristo (“Blood of Christ”) mountains after being impressed by the reddish hue of the snowy peaks at sunrise. The Sangre de Cristo Mountains with all their true natural beauty, boast about tails of their long and colorful Spanish history. Unlike most of Colorado’s mountains, these extremely rugged mountains were uplifted suddenly in massive blocks, creating a range of dramatic vertical proportions. Crestone Needle boasts a height of 14,000ft and climbers consider the Needle to be Colorado’s most challenging peak to climb. Three more fourteeners tower together south of the boundary and their melting snow feeds the many small rivers and lakes in the surrounding areas nourishing oak,aspen and spruce forests. Living happily in these ranges you will find black bear, elk, deer, bighorn sheep and a few mountain lions.
