Once the home of the Ute Indians, it’s said they interpreted the shape of a Buffalo on the face of Mount Lamborn as a symbol of sacred life and abundance. The Utes knew the valley’s waters and lands would provide for them so they could thrive. The valley has been through many eras in culture and consciousness, but has always called to spiritual and community-oriented beings. It is celebrated for its organic agriculture, nurturing tight-knit community, stunning surrounding wilderness, and vibrant arts culture. It is home to a great number of visionary artists, yogis, herbalists, medicine people, and has a diverse population, practicing an array of world religions.
