"A small town in southern central Colorado"

Hooper is located in the San Luis Valley, very close to the Great Sand Dunes National Preserve. There are only 103 people currently living in this small, remote town. There are some really nice views of the mountains here, but not much to see in the town itself. Most of the roads are dirt, and it's obvious, as with many small towns, there are no covenants in place. Some of the homes here are trashy looking with many old cars broken down in the yard and one house in particular has a bunch of tires painted a multitude of colors and buried so as to form some sort of fence. Definitely not something you'd see in a larger town.

The major industry in Hooper is wholesale trade. The median household income is $26,496 and over 44% of the residents are living below the poverty rate. The average median home price here is $76,896. Hooper has experienced a higher than normal unemployment rate since the economy took a nose dive.
  • run down looking
