Image of Gardner Butte by Jeffrey Beall


Huerfango County, Colorado

Gardner is located in the Huerfango River Valley just a comfortable drive west of Walsenburg on State Highway 69. Gardner sits on an age old path used for over hundreds of years. Originally it was traveled by the Apache, Comanche, and Ute hunting parties. Then came Spanish explorers, followed by French trappers. Mountain men like Zebulon Pike (Pike’s Peak) came to hunt and trap. Settlers of a different sort arrived in the 1960’s: the hippies. Large communities were founded in the serene valley. To this day, the counter culture lifestyle is celebrated annually.
