Costilla County, stretches over almost 1,227 square miles. With the arrival of Europeans in the late 1600S, it became formally established on April 5, 1851, and remains the oldest continuously occupied settlement in Colorado.( San Luis being the oldest town.
The county attracts a lot of Americans looking to build an homestead because land prices are reasonable and, despite low precipitation, it's well suited for crop cultivation and the raising of livestock. Not there are near 300 days of sunshine per year too.
Colorado is broken up into game management units. Costilla County is part of GMU 83 and this particular GMU has one of the largest elk herds. The Trinchera elk herd has an estimated population of around 7,000 elk. Deer, antelope, coyotes, bears, bighorn sheep, mountain lions, black bear, and coyotes are common sites in the area. Large herds of 100 elk are not uncommon, and even if you aren't a hunter you can come and just appreciate all of these beautiful animals with your camera instead of a rifle.
If you love birdwatching you will be able to spot many species here in the San Luis Valley. Of the more than 500 species of birds in Colorado, over 300 of them can be found in the valley. But it's the dancing and rattling calls of the sandhill cranes numbering up to 20,000 during their southern migration pattern that make the San Luis Valley especially impressive for bird enthusiasts. The Alamosa Wild Life Refuge area along with the Rio Grande River and the many reservoirs in this valley make bird watching throughout the year special and very unique. The many bird species range from Sandhill Cranes, Magpies, to Black birds, also depending on the time of year birds of prey such Eagles, Hawks, and Harriers frequent the area. So dust of those binoculars and come out here. Below are a couple links to birds spotted recently in the area.
