41 Acres, feet of riverfrontage

I had a lot of fun photographing and videoing this spectacular riverfront land on the Blanco River with lush grass and 99 percent usability. This is just minutes from downtown Pagosa Springs, CO and would be an ideal spot for someone with horses or wanting to grow crops commercially. It would also be a great spot for an RV park or a fishing enthusiast. The lush meadows could be irrigated from the river and 99 percent of the property is usable.

Check out the video above for more stunning scenes from various parts of the property. Below I have embedded three additional videos showing more detail of the property interior. Call today for a personal tour of this amazing riverfront opportunity in Pagosa Springs, CO.



Men love maps. They want to see the lot dimensions, aerial views, topography and much more. The tools below are great references for the Pagosa Springs real estate buyer and current home owner as well.

Lynx Mapping

45 Acre Riverfront Property Pagosa SpringsThe Lynx Mapping System was developed by Pagosa Springs resident and geo-spacial specialist John Middendorf. I use it most often for measuring properties and researching ownership information.





Archuleta County Mapping
94 Acre Riverfront Property Pagosa Springs

The Archuleta County Mapping system displays property boundaries over satellite or topography images which can be saved and printed. It’s important to understand that the property boundaries can often be off a bit because the county has not made adjustments for the earth’s curvature. Therefore, none of the images should be construed as a survey — we always recommend a buyer hire a licensed and insured Colorado surveyor when purchasing property. But the county site is a great tool to get an initial idea of the following:  waterfront, trees, topography and elevation, proximity to town and other landmarks, neighboring properties and much more.

Most of us have hiked some parts of the Piedra River Trail in Pagosa Springs.  But hike it in the spring and you may not recognize it with its mammoth icicles and waterfalls pouring in to the river all over the place.   Spring is time of rebirth in the mountains and the high country feeds the rivers with snow melt as the days grow long and warm.

The Piedra River Trail is outstanding place to view nature replenishing  the rivers.  Find a dry rock and just sit and listen to the drop, drop drop of water falling upon the rocks by your feet and the river rushes by.

Below are pictures  and video that I shot on April 8, 2008  that I just got around to editing and posting.  Enjoy.

Some hikers exit the trail on the north end. The views are so expansive when you leave the canyon

Mellane, Evan, Aviana and my brother Chanse hiked up the Piedra River yesterday and explored the falls around the box canyon.  This is a great hike where you need to cross the river several times to reach the pools.   I had last visited the area back in 2006 before Mellane and I got married.  These falls can be accessed from the campgrounds at the end of Forest Service Road 640.

Below is a video showing me getting ready to jump off the rock walls into two deep pools.
