San Luis Valley Overland Rally hosted by SLV Great Outdoors and the Colorado Farm Brewery
We will do guided drives through some unique country on Saturday. Depending on time and the vehicles that show up, we have several options in the Southern San Juans around Alamosa Canyon before heading across the San Luis Valley to the Rio Grande Natural Area. We will have opportunities to visit historic homesteads and petroglyphs along the Rio Grande Gorge. Saturday evening social at the Colorado Farm Brewery. They will have a food truck available, and of course tasty beverages. The Farm Brewery has outdoor games for all and an easy going atmosphere for hanging out for the evening. Check it out at https://www.cofarmbeer.com/ .
There is of course more to do than hanging out at the Farm Brewery. If you are interested in hot springs, fishing, climbing, or mountain biking, let me know and I will continue to update with information.
Sunday will provide a multitude of ways to exit the San Luis Valley depending on what direction you are heading, but certainly Medano Pass (currently closed) for those heading east, Elwood Pass for west bound, and the Del Norte National Monument for anyone heading south.
