Mooooving along the Scenic Highway of Legends

Yes, cattle drives still happen in the west and in Huerfano County. In fact twice a year folks living in the Cuchara valley along Hwy 12 between La Veta and Cuchara will find themselves in the midst of such a drive as the Goemmer family moves their cattle to the high country in the spring and to lower pastures in the fall. The Goemmer’s have been in the area since the late 1800s, with several ranches along Hwy 12. This scene occurred on Sunday, December 10, just south of La Veta. One just has to be patient and enjoy the ride. Photo by Bob Kennemer. (See related story, page 14.)
