A little about the nearby town of Crestone, Co:
"Native Americans called it the Bloodless Valley, setting aside their weapons as they made vision quests up sacred Blanca Peak, the great sentinel of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. Later inhabitants noted a peculiar energy attributed to a combination of wind, 8,000-foot altitude, and an enormous aquifer beneath the highest high desert outside of Tibet. Some went further, claiming hidden UFO bases and mysterious portals where aliens enter and exit our world. All the while, the largest alpine valley on Earth became a magnet for eccentrics, dreamers, and seekers."

Come Experience the Energy for Yourself!
