Monte Vista, CO grain elevator.

Monte Vista, CO grain elevator.

Monte Vista, CO

This elevator is owned by Coors. The San Luis valley growns barley. Of course, this barley is moved to the Coors Brewery in Golden, CO.

This was a Rio Grande branchline that ran from Alamosa to Creede many years ago. The UP sold this line to a shortline railroad. It is called the San Luis & Rio Grande. They run a tourist train from Alamosa to the town of La Veta.

Monte Vista is 17 miles northwest of Alamosa.
