The property is located in the scenic southern area of Colorado, east of Alamosa, in the central part of the San Luis Valley. To the west are the Alamosa National Wildlife Refuge and the Rio Grande; to the north is the Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve that contains the tallest sand dunes in North America.

The eastern boundary of the San Luis Valley is defined by the Sangre de Cristo mountain range; the western boundary is less abrupt, running along the southern extension of the San Juans, the La Garita Mountains. Alamosa is about the center of the valley, approximately 235 miles from Denver and 165 miles from Colorado Springs.

The area is mainly ranches and, to a lesser degree, farms. Cattle and sheep are bred and forage crops are grown. South of the property, the main crops on farms include potatoes, barley, wheat, lettuce and alfalfa. The area has a high water table and many artesian wells. The snow and spring fed Rio Grande provides abundant irrigation water.

Timber is provided by the Rio Grande National Forest. So are pastures for cattle and sheep. And it is a recreational area as well: you can go boating, fishing, and hunting for deer, elk, antelope, bear and big horn sheep. There is small game in abundance, and you can go hunting birds in the upland or water fowl in the valley.
