Rye is a small town, population approximately 200, located in Pueblo County in south central Colorado. It is situated within the peaceful Greenhorn Valley, which is comprised of three distinct areas; Colorado City, San Isabel and Rye. Over the years many have staked a claim to this beautiful area - Native Americans, France, Spain and Mexico - before it became part of the state of Colorado in 1876. Today, the gorgeous scenery and moderate climate (with over 300 days of sunshine per year) along with abundant recreational activities has made Greenhorn Valley a haven for retirees and those looking for a simpler way of life away from the big cities. The San Isabel National Forest is just minutes from Rye and offers thousands of pristine acres for hiking, biking, snowmobiling, cross country skiing, camping and more. Downhill skiing is available at nearby Monarch and Cuchara Valley. Lake Isabel and the many pristine mountain streams of the area offer trout fishing, while the warmer waters of Lake Beckwith and Lake Pueblo offer fishing for bass, crappie and catfish. Boating is allowed on all three lakes (Lake Pueblo has become one of the most popular lakes in the state for water skiing and boating.) Golf, tennis and horseback riding are also available in the Rye area.

Rye Weather & Climate

South-central is a complex mix of mountains and desert. Since Colorado is a mid-latitude interior continental state, and has the highest elevations in the United States, weather can change dramatically from place to place. The state has one of the most complex climates in the nation. Southern Colorado is not always warmer than the northern part of the state, due to the elevation. Generally, the mountainous areas are cooler and wetter than lower elevations. Winters are cold and snowy, and summers are warm with temperatures in the 70s and 80s. Nights anytime of the year can be crisp in Colorado. Humidity is usually not a problem. Southern Colorado receives 300 days of sunshine per year. So, although there is plenty of snow in the wintertime, except at the highest elevations, it usually melts by mid-day.
