Welcome to Crestone

There are several theories explaining Crestone’s status as a powerful spiritual magnet – perhaps it's the energy flow that follows waters off the Continental Divide or it's the mountains themselves that call spiritual travelers – but at least some of the draw likely has to do with Maurice Strong, a former UN undersecretary-general and entrepreneur. Strong planned a large housing development here in the late 1970s, but when it didn’t take off he donated plots to various spiritual organizations. Regardless, there’s no question about Crestone’s setting: the soaring backdrop of 14,000ft peaks is truly stunning.
