Highway of Legends...in pictures

A few weekends ago we decided to do a road trip. We drove the highway of legends. We drove to Trinidad, CO and then drove along on a scenic byway up to Walsenberg. Earlier in the summer we saw this byway but we were always on our way to hike a 14er or coming home from hiking. We decided to have an enjoyable tourist weekend without hiking.

Day 2 of the trip we did the Gold Belt Tour basically Pueblo to Cripple Creek on an old railroad track turned road route. Gorgeous!

We first stopped in Ludlow at the massacre site. Very sad and historical landmark

The coke ovens.


Apishapa Arch

The only pic with both of us in it.

Hi Cow

Bishop's Castle...coolest tourist site to see!!!

Old ghost town

Ghost town but now a gambling town.

A great weekend to see a beautiful section of Colordo. When you are driving on I-25 you think this section is so barren but omnce you drive in a little it really is amazing and so much history!

  1. Oh man, those are awesome pictures. I don't think I've been to a lot of those places before....Bishop's Castle looks really cool. I will have to investigate that...maybe a great fall trip with my boys :). Thanks.
