About Walter Scherer

We are an adventuresome couple that love to hike and explore the surrounding area. We have two Golden Retrievers that are constantly by our side. Walter loves to duck hunt with his trusty retriever as this area has plenty to offer. Winter or summer the area is packed with adventures not to mention the wild horses that Bonnie continues to photograph and write their stories.

Walter Scherer purchased this Chalet in 2010

Why Walter Scherer chose San Luis

I fell in love with the Sangre de Christo range while in the Boy Scouts and later when I served in the army at Ft. Carson, Colorado. I also was in the National Ski Patrol and skiied at most of the areas in Colorado. When we found our property, that was it!

What makes this Chalet unique

Wild Horse Mesa is in the beautiful San Luis Valley near the community of San Luis, the oldest town in Colorado. We are 42 miles from Taos, New Mexico, 54 miles from Alamosa, Colorado. We are surrounded by mountains. Taos, New Mexico is a renowned ski resort and artist colony. Native American Pow Wows, baloon festivals, film festivals, and other activities attract thousands of visitors each year. Red River, New Mexico, is a wild west type of town with great trout fishing, skiing, hiking, and fun times. Fort Garland, Colorado is the former site of Kit Carson's fort. San Luis, Colorado has the beautiful stations of the cross on top of a mountain reached by foot, or by automobile. These stations are duplicates of those in St. Peters Basilica, in Rome, Italy. The Great Sand Dunes National Monument is just an hour away. Don't miss the breathtaking trip along the Rio Grande River on the Rio Grande Railway.
