San Luis Valley Regional Airport, Bergman Field, is 2 miles south of Alamosa, CO. It is open to the public, supporting commercial service and general aviation.
Camera views include Crestone, Blanca Peak, the San Luis hills and the east approach to Wolf Creek Pass. Weather in this high plains region is quite variable. High winds are common with large directional changes with increasing altitude. This divergence in winds is obvious when low-level cumulus clouds move one way, and the high-level cirrus clouds move another. Isolated thunderstorms often move through the area quickly.
