  • San Juan co. Great place for a ride. Bike, side by side, 4 wheeler or a nice walk. So much history there. Right now the color's are starting the trees are pretty nice this time of year.
  • This is the best mining museum in Colorado. There are days worth of exhibits and displays if you enjoy history. They have some incredible artifacts from various eras. It really helps you understand how tough and resilient the people who settled these mountains were.
